#1803 closed enhancement (fixed)

KML: Documents with multiple geometry types are not supported

Reported by: crschmidt Owned by: Didge
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.6.1
Component: OGR_SRS Version: unspecified
Severity: normal Keywords: kml
Cc: warmerdam, Mateusz Łoskot


FeatureServer generates KML with multiple geometry types in the same layer. Currently, GDAL fails to read these. It would be nice if they could all be provided in one layer, or, if that's not possible, to create seperate layers for each geometry type.

File attached is example file which can be used to test this behavior, if it is developed.

Patch attached causes the behavior I had hoped for, at least at the base level.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

In trunk (r16908) and branches/1.6 (r16909) : "KML: Add support for reading MultiGeometry and layers with mixed geometry type. Avoid quadratic complexity when reading KML files. Advertize 25D geometry type when relevant"

Test improved in r16910
