This section covers how to import KML files from your mobile device into PointMan. Note: A KML is an unzipped KMZ file. If you have a KMZ, you can unzip it and you will have a KML file to use. Importing KML files into PointMan will upload them as a layer and can be viewed from the layer panel.

2. Login to PointMan using your credentials

3. Tap the Layer Panel PointMan Layers 1.png button on the bottom left corner of the map display

6. Fill in Layer Name and Folder. Folder is the layer group and the layer will show underneath it on the layer panel so choose a name that best fits the uploaded KML file. Choose a color style and set any of the desired checkbox options
