collective.geo.file provides a view for KML, KMZ (Keyhole Markup Language) and GPX (GPS eXchange Format) files. The view renders the file in a openlayers Map using the collective.geo library.
The product does not introduce a content type but adds an additional view to the Archetypes file and collection type. It uses Plone Maps (collective.geo) to render the map.
When you upload a file with the mimetype 'application/vnd.google-earth.kml+xml' (i.e with the extension *.kml), application/vnd.google-earth.kmz' (extension *.kmz) or 'application/gpx+xml' (i.e. with the extension *.gpx) the map view will be applied by default.
For Collections an additional view is added that displays all KML, KMZ and GPX files returned by the query as a layer. Choose 'File Map View' from the display menue of the topic.
If you assign coordinates to the file with the IGeoreferenceable Interface you have to set the viewletmanager to 'Do not display map' otherwise it will REALLY screw up your view. The coordinates assigned there will display as the first layer on the 'Map View' of the file and they will display in the 'File Map View' of a topic.
