The sidebar in Google Earth lets you use the mouse to drag/drop items like polygons. You should be able to click & hold on one of your Untitled Polygons, move the mouse pointer up to the desired location in your My Places, and then release the mouse button to "drop" the polygon into that new location. In future, first select the folder where you want ...

Have you tried using the KML to Layer tool? http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//00120000004w000000 Restarting ArcMap and ensuring your KML file is valid by loading it into Google Earth are also good things to try.

You can't Google: From February 2015, maps created in the classic Google Maps — https://maps.google.com/ — will no longer load KML/KMZ files from external websites. However, we know that KML files are a really useful way to work with geographic data, so we’ve added KML to Google My Maps, and continue to support this format with other Google Maps APIs. ...

The tool doesn't support map services. A map service does not serve the actual data, it serves image exports of the data. The tool converts features into KML. These two ideas don't mesh. I did a quick test: I didn't get that error (not sure how/why you're getting the error), but it did put "something" inside the output KML. I have a mapservice of the ...

You appear to be encountering a known limit when converting line and polygon labels to KML. This is documented as Technical Article 43000: Labels do not appear in Google Earth after converting to KML: This is a known limit. Google Earth only displays labels for point features (placemarks). To display labels for line or polygon features in Google ...

You are correct that you need a server to be able to process and send small chunks of the data at the request of your web client. This is the promise of many web-based GIS. This is achieved via 'tiling'. There are a few different approaches Static pre-rendered tiles: There are tools which will allow you to create pre-rendered image tiles from your vector ...

Im not sure how familiar you are with GIS but within QGIS there is a buffer tool. The problem you'll face with most of these tools is that they buffer around the whole polygon and not just the northern/southern edges I hope that helps. Rowan

As others have mentioned (including the horse's mouth), apparently ESRI excluded code to translate the Attributes, so to use ArcMap the user has to go through extra steps to split the data then rejoin it in ArcMap. Other GIS display/edit tools can be used to avoid these arduous extra steps.

You might be able to find them at visionofbritain.org.uk certainly if you contact them they will have those boundaries in their DB. I'm pretty sure they are publicly archived somewhere as a condition of the grant.

Could someone sanity check what I've done? I got what I was after, but I want to make sure I have all of the necessary and none of the unnecessary steps so that people can replicate it in the future. Per this page: http://memhamwan.org/user-coverage-map-how-is-it-made/ I ran (after setting PATH and GDAL_DATA environmental variables properly): ...

I have found a solution to my issue and I would like to share it. I managed to export attributes (up to two) in the "save as" window when saving a vector layer. More precisely, in the "data source options" section, I have: Set as "relativeToGround" the "Altitude Mode" Wrote name of attribute I would like to export in the "DescriptionField" field Wrote ...
