I have exported an ESRI shapefile (polygon) to KML using R, but the resulting layer shows only the outer extent of the polygon. How can I fill in the area with a color? Any help is greatly appreciated.
The code is as follows:
library(rgdal) setwd("G:\\GIS_SJR\\GIS Shapefiles\\Boundaries") polygon <- readOGR(".", "20km_buffer_albers") polygonWGS <- spTransform(polygon, CRS("+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84")) writeOGR(polygonWGS, dsn="polygonWGS.kml", layer="polygonWGS", driver="KML")
