Add Map Overlays

The Goal:

You would like to display additional map features as context for the geographic focus of your work, such as rivers, roads, or conservation areas.

The Solution:

DevResults allows you to upload KML files of 2-dimensional map features to your site.

The Details:

KML files contain the code that DevResults reads and displays on maps. DevResults does not offer tools for creating or editing KML files, but you can do so in Google Earth. Often, KML files of useful map features can be found publicly available online.

The Process:

Go to Administration > Map Overlays from any DevResults page.

Note: If you do not see the Administration menu or Map Overlays option, then you do not have permission to add map overlays. Please speak to your supervisor.

Click on "Upload Files".

Select the KML file to upload.

On your dashboard map widget, click on the gear box. Your KML file will appear in the list of Layers. Check the box for your file to display it on the map.
