Exporting SHP/KML files with Polygons

Question asked by Marian Plucinski on Feb 23, 2020

Hello,

 

I'd like to export multiple polygons from TBC, in SHP or KML format, to be used in MS Excel / 3D Maps.

 

When I create my regions in Terramodel (closed PLINE) and export to KML, I can read that file in 3D Maps.

 

When I create my regions in TBC I encounter some problems:

-regions created as Boundaries do not import (those are exported as Lines.shp file)

-regions created as Linestrings do not import (those are exported as Lines.shp file)

-regions created as Polygons do import (those are exported as Polygons.shp)

 

My questions are:

1) How to force TBC to export Boundaries to SHAPE file as Polygons?

2) Alternatively, how to convert many Boundaries to Polygons while retaining their names?

 

To clarify the terms I used:

By "Boundaries" I mean regions created with "Create Boundary" command

By "Linestrings" I mean regions created with "Create Linestring" command, with Auto-Close ticked on

By "Polygons" I mean regions created with "Create Polygon" command
