I'm not a GIS expert at all, but I've been asked to add a KML layer to an Openlayers map which probably needs some tweaks and that's where I get confused.
Let say I have an Openlayers map with the following projection:
Projection: EPSG:900913 DisplayProjection: EPSG:4326
The KML file that I have contains Geo-coordinates like these:
When I'm trying to show this data on the map, I got nothing, however another KML file shows perfectly fine. It contains some test data like these:
4651136.141979168, 5265323.674468365 4997243.006006268, 5205611.478023042
As far as I can see, there is a projection issue here. What I don't get is the first data looks more correct according to my map projection settings, but it doesn't show up any where or at least I can't find it any where. The second file seems to have different projection, maybe
Spherical Mercator), but it will go straight to the map.
We have also ArcGIS installed in one our computers, however as I said, I'm not a GIS expert. If somebody could guide me either through the exporting KML file in ArcGIS (I have the original shape files as well), or the Openlayers settings to show up the KML file, I'd really appreciate that.
