collective.geo.file is a Plone product that provides a view for KML (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.
When you upload a KML file with the correct mimetype 'application/vnd.google-earth.kml+xml' (i.e with the extension *.kml) 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 and GPX files returned by the query as a layer. Choose 'KML File Map View' from the display menue of the topic.
You have to register the mimetype 'application/gpx+xml' manually in the Plone MimeTypes Registry:
# In the ZMI, go to the root of your Plone site.
# Go into the mimetypes_registry
# At the top of that sreen is a button to Add a New MIME type. Click that.
# In the resulting screen, complete that form.
# In name, enter 'GPS eXchange Format'.
# Check 'Binary?'.
# In mime-type, enter: 'application/gpx+xml'.
# In Extensions, enter: 'gpx'.
# In Globs, enter: '*.gpx'.
