[resolved] Tiff layer not working (6 posts)

    First of all thank you for this plugin. I think it's the most useful google maps plugin for WordPress.
    I've added a couple of vector kml to my basemap.
    Now I'm trying to add a kml that loads a tif overlay. It doesn't work.
    Is it possible at all?
    Regards.

    This plugin uses the Google Maps api to show maps in a browser, and browsers don't handle TIFF images. You need to convert the TIFF to a PNG (or JPEG) and use that in your KML file instead.

    Still doesn't work.
    This is my code:

    <dl title="googlemap;w:700;h:600">
    <dt>Center of map</dt>
    <dt>sovraimpresso</dt>

    The kml works on google earth. I transformed both to jpg and png but still doesn't show up.

    Still doesn't work.
    This is my code:

    <dl title="googlemap;w:700;h:600">
    <dt><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Forli,+Italy&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=44.216171,12.042389&spn=0.089936,0.154324&sll=-23.529592,-46.630096&sspn=0.003595,0.004823&oq=forli,&t=m&hnear=Forli,+Province+of+Forl%C3%AC-Cesena,+Emilia-Romagna,+Italy&z=13">Center of map</a></dt>
    <dt><a title="kml" href="http://paulvern.kodingen.com/benzdic.kml">sovraimpresso</a></dt>

    The site is at http://paulvern.kodingen.com/DatiQA/?page_id=73. The map on the bottom should show an overlayed jpg map.

    The kml works on google earth. I transformed both to jpg and png but still doesn't show up.

    Google Maps API doesn't seem to like the gx:LatLonQuad element. Using the LatLonBox element instead, it works:

    <LatLonBox>
        <north>44.2505923908037</north>
        <south>44.1826752080822</south>
        <east>12.1025091657406</east>
        <west>11.978766601043</west>
    </LatLonBox>

    cheers,
    Ross

    Thank you. It works now! Sadly I suppose I still can't have a partially transparent png image as in google earth but that is another story...
