To export maps from any of these Regional councils, click the property area you wish to export a boundary of and then click the 3 dots of the right-hand sidebar.
This should open the export options, form here click “Export to KMZ”

Once you have the KMZ file downloaded, open it with Google Earth Pro (free software).
Right-click each map item; if the map item has the option “Split part Multi Geometry”
then you will need to click this.

Once you have done this for all map items, right-click the folder that holds the map item(s) and select “Save place as..”

From here change the “Save as type:” to Kml and then click “Save”

This file should now be able to be imported into the QCONZ FWFP tool!
