I have a kml file which displays correctly in Google Earth but only as a bounding box in QGIS . What can I do to see the associated raster image?

  • What do you want to do? Display your KML in QGIS (then, what does your KML file look like)? Display Google satellite imagery in QGIS? – wiltomap Jun 16 '16 at 13:35

    Somebody created KML files to overlay existing maps of the Korean War and topographic maps of Korea from 1950's. If I view those kml's in Google Earth I can see the maps in the right place. They point to jpeg images, which themselves are not georeferenced. When I import the same kml file in QGIS, I only get to see the bounding box, not the raster image, like in the picture above. In the attribute table I can see the link to the image but I am not able to display it. Here is that particular image.!koreanwar2.org/kwp2/maps/l751/… – Horia Popa Jun 16 '16 at 15:18
  • Could you share the KML file (or a piece of it)? – wiltomap Jun 17 '16 at 6:34
  • Here it is. I can use the extend to georeference the image. I thought it would be an easier way. I have to split the code...part 1 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <kml xmlns="opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:gx="google.com/kml/ext/2.2" xmlns:kml="opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:atom="w3.org/2005/Atom"> – Horia Popa Jun 19 '16 at 14:42
