Update

It appears I cannot upload KML files to GeoServer, even if I use the Importer Web Interface.

Using the "Import Data" web interface, I tried to manually add the KML file to GeoServer. I moved my KML file onto the server, then used the "Import Data" interface as follows:

  1. Choose a data source to import from
    • Spatial Files
  2. Configure the data source
    • Choose a file or directory: /var/lib/opengeo/geoserver/data/amallard/myFMLfile.kml
  3. Specify the target for the import
    • Workspace: amallard
    • Store: Create New

When I clicked "Next" I got an error

java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No features found

And this traceback in the error log:

Full traceback can be seen here - (I cannot embed the entire error log traceback in here because then my post exceeds the maximum amount of characters.)

I received this error with 2 KML files that most certainly do have features. I used a third, sample KML file that did upload, however, upon previewing it with OpenLayers (inside GeoServer) there was nothing there.

KML Files I've tried

KML1 - doesn't upload
KML2 - doesn't upload
KML3 - uploads but doesn't display in OpenLayers - open it in Google Earth and it doesn't display either. But I can open and view the file as is in Google Earth before I even upload it to GeoServer

Original Post

I've read in numerous places that you can import KML files into GeoServer. (Our current system converts KML files to SHP before uploading to GeoServer, but that doesn't always work the best so we're trying to upload the KML files directly).

I understand that this should be possible with the GeoServer Importer Extension, but I am having no luck of getting the REST API calls right.

headers = {'Content-type': 'application/json'}
data = { 
    "import": {
        "targetWorkspace":{
            "workspace":{
                "name": username
            }
        },
        "targetStore":{
            "dataStore":{
                "name": s_name
            }
        },
        "data":{
            "type": "file",
            "file": str(weburl + "/media/shapefiles/" + username + "/" + str(file_name))
        }
    }
}
r = requests.post(
    url + "/imports",
    data=json.dumps(data),
    auth=(admin, psswd),
    headers=headers
)

From the code above, I get a status code of 400, the GeoServer logs show

This seems like it's giving me the error, because I'm trying to upload a file into a location that hasn't been created yet. However, this is actually very similar to what we do when uploading the SHP files to GeoServer. I have tried to upload the KML through the default REST API much like how we already upload the SHP files, but the GeoServer logs give me an unsupported type: kml error.

What am I doing wrong here? How can I upload KML files to GeoServer?

  • Does it work if you upload by hand? Possibly not the REST API, but some other part of the geoserver instance configuration. – BradHards Feb 27 '17 at 22:13
  • @BradHards see updated post. Is that what you mean? – amallard Feb 27 '17 at 22:29
  • So the problem is not in your REST call. Your KML and geoserver don't agree on structure. – BradHards Feb 27 '17 at 22:40
  • @BradHards Is this a configuration setting then? I thought KML uploading was an out-of-the-box feature for the Importer Extension (Note: I did not install the extension, could the dev who installed it do something wrong perhaps?) – amallard Feb 27 '17 at 22:58

    Suggest updating your question - the critical detail is about to get lost in comments... – BradHards Feb 28 '17 at 0:11
