I have a map, i have exported it using grid, 20x20 squares (400 maps now)

I need to make a square polygon for each map (shapefile or whaever format that i can later export to kmz/kml).

is there an automated way that GM can make these polygons from each map?

thanks in advance

    What you need to do is load your 400 new gridded tiles back in, then select them all in the Control Center, then right-click and select the option to create area features from the map bounding rectangles. Then you can simply export those to whatever format that you need.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
