I am new to MapRun and despite a few efforts, I keep receiving an error message: "Invalid argument(s): Longitude must be between -90 and 90 degrees but was 274.2003044287447." I created both files (KMZ, KML) with no problems and am using OOMapper for the Georeferenced Map and Purple Pen for existing course. These line up perfectly on Google Earth. I am assuming this has something to do with my phone settings (Iphone 12 pro) but not sure. I receive the 6 digit code and but when going to the Go to Start button on the app, this is when the error appears. I am sure since I am new at this, it is something that I did not see in the instructions.
The map is in KY, USA
Thanks for all your work on this
Not sure if I can help but if you can post your KML (and KMZ if possible) happy to take a look at the contents. Forgive if you already know this but the KML is just a text file (in a Markup Language like XML) and the KMZ is a compressed combination of a jpeg map (or maps if tiled) and a KML file that describes the georeferencing of the jpeg file(s). These can be viewed and modified using a basic compression software like the free 7Zip. Reviewing these might show what is causing Maprun to have issues and then, working backwards, figure out why. I highly doubt that it has anything to do with your phone.
I thought that maybe this was caused by me trimming the map but this is way off.
The map was produced using Lidar and OpenStreetMap. Everything has lined with GPS and there have not been any problems so I have no idea. I am going to take a look at other maps here and see if I can find the same issue
Edited: It is not really way off as it is a 360 degree error (looks like the numbers are correct - just take away 360 ). I also noted that the rotation in the KMZ is around 3 degrees - I would have expected more like 5.3 if this is simply Magnetic North.
Thanks Peter, I did notice the 90 factor and thought that was odd when talking about 360 degrees. I should be able to do a search and replace for the longitude in the text file and see how that works. I am curious about why this is happening. I do not think it is isolated to one map. I checked another map in the area and the same thing happened.
Are you using OpenOrienteering Mapper (OOM, the application) to generate the KMZ? I have never seen this in OOM. I just tried to reproduce it using a Template jpeg and world file from OpenorienteeringMap (the online service) in the same area. I was wondering it was a bug in OOM based on the UTM or general area but it worked fine (the KMZ is good). As you noted, you can just open up the KMZ and edit the doc.kml to replace all >274 with >-85 but this does not explain the root cause.
As a side note. I have found with OOM that if you add some objects, save in omap format and open in Purple Pen, it may cause some shifts in the objects location in the PP file. The work around is to save the OOM map in the OCAD format and use this with PP.
Thanks for posting that! I suddenly realized when you asked me if I created a KMZ File directly from OOM that I might not have the latest version. I had 9.4 and so I downloaded the new version and it worked. I would not have even thought that there was a problem with the version I had. Possibly a bug in OOM? I had not heard anyone else posting a problem with earlier versions.
Good news. The KMZ feature in OOM is fairly new and there were a few bugs in the first versions. I wish they also offered the option to produce the KMZ untiledas it is very difficult to adjust anything once tiled.
