Borders of an Area exported to Google Earth

“I have been able to export field outlines from PC-GIS PRO to Google Earth as a .kml file. I am having trouble when I zoom in on a map, with my boarder outlines disappearing.  I have tried making them thicker in PC-GIS PRO, but that doesn’t seem to make a difference on Google. Do you have any ideas?”

You can change the thickness of the outlines in Google Earth.

In Google Earth, select your Area Feature Topic and click the + sign by it.

Right-click on the specific Area Feature and select Properties.

Use the “Style, Color” tab to change the Lines and Areas properties as desired.

      This post pertains to changing the properties of an Area Feature that you have exported from PC-GIS to Google Earth as a .kml file. The area of interest will be under the Area Topic Name under My Places in Google Earth.

      If you can get a .kml file containing the country borders then you could open it in Google Earth and make the outlines for the areas representing the countries thicker.
