KML files for National and Provincial Parks on Foreflight.

Recommended Posts

I've been playing around with Forflight, wanting to superimpose National and Provincial Parks in a clearer way on the VFR Charts.  I was able to find a link for National Parks, so I thought I would share this. I'll throw in a bit of a tutorial as well.  




Once you open the link (on your iPad/iPhone):

-Click on "Menu"

-Click on "download"

-Click on "download options" under KML

-Click on "Generate new download with latest data)

-Then (once it is downloaded) find your "Files" app on your device

-Click on "recents"

-Find the file (it should be the most recent, but it starts with National_P)

-Then click the "forward button" (a square with an arrow pointing up) on the bottom left of your screen.

-Find the Foreflight logo in the bottom row of options (you may have to click on "more" to find it, then click on it.

-You will come to a "Custom Content " option.  Click on that.

-You then come to a "Custom Map Layers" option, click on that.

-It should now be imported, then click on "show on map", and you should have a red outline on all the National Parks on your App (instead of the 'hardly visible lines already on the charts) 😜.   



Now, if anyone can find KML files for the Provincial Parks I would be most grateful.  I've searched for some time and I didn't run across any links that would provide me with this.
