I have a kml file of roads that I would like to convert into a shapefile using QGIS, I understand that this should be a straightforward task however I am running into the issue of extracting necessary data from each feature in the kml file. Essentially I want all of the information from each kml feature (see google earth screenshot).
I want each of those attributes (FID, AMA_NAME, Shape_Length, etc...) to be displayed in the attribute table in QGIS as separate values. However, when I bring this kml file into QGIS and view the attribute table all of this information is grouped within the description field for each feature (see below QGIS screenshot).
Is there a way to get the information for each feature from the description field into an attribute table or other form that can be queried in QGIS?
