I'm working on mapping my data in Google Fusion and would like to have a KML file for Scottish Datazones 2011 so I can do some work on deprivation. I can't find one and I don't have the skills to work out how to make one.

  • How far have you gotten on your own? Have you found data.gov.uk/dataset/data-zone-boundaries-2011 for example? – Barry Carter Sep 13 '17 at 15:20
  • I've been to that website - it seems the shapefile has no data. – Lan Sep 14 '17 at 16:50
  • I downloaded sedsh127.sedsh.gov.uk/Atom_data/ScotGov/ZippedShapefiles/…, unzipped it, and ran ogrinfo -al SG_DataZone_Bdry_2011.shp on one of the unzipped file. There were 90,719 lines of data. – Barry Carter Sep 14 '17 at 16:57
  • Thanks - I'm a bit new and lost on this! It appears I did better last year and had actually got as far as the zipped files last year when I tried this as I have these files (sorry my memory is terrible) but I got stuck trying to convert it to a kml file. – Lan Sep 16 '17 at 13:00
  • google "shp2kml" – Barry Carter Sep 17 '17 at 1:18
