i am trying to convert a kml file that i made on UMap website into shapes.txt using http://bdferris.github.io/kml-to-gtfs-shapes/ but it doesnt see anything in the map any special tools please ?

  • Is there any text output when you run the conversion tool? Does a shapes.txt get generated? – til_b May 18 '16 at 10:09

    it generates a file including only the normal header of shapes.txt and no data – Dina Magdy May 18 '16 at 10:18

Yes, I reproduced this behaviour with a simple KML generated using umap.

The tool (http://bdferris.github.io/kml-to-gtfs-shapes/) will only convert polylines, as it states in the first sentence of the website:

This page provides a simple tool to generate a GTFS shapes.txt file from polyline entries in a KML file.

(emphasis mine).

Polygons dont work and only produce the header line, polylines work and produce correct output.
