KwaZulu-Natal cadastral

Installation instructions:
Unzip all the files into a folder that is not under C:\Program Files. Recent versions of Windows make ZIP archives look like folders, but you must unzip everything into a folder e.g. C:\MyMaps before opening the .map file with PlanetGIS. Right-click on the .zip file and click "Extract All..."

Please note: This map needs to be in a folder that has the cadastral and streetmap in subfolders. Please refer to the image below which shows the exact folder structure required to use this map. If you need to use a different structure you can do so, but you will have to tell Planet where each map is located.

An example of the cadastral and OpenStreetMap combined. Notice that there are some street numbers as well.

This combination requires a directory structure as shown here. There must be a "Cadastral2015" subfolder containing each province in a further subfolder and on the same level a folder for OpenStreetMap. The "SA" map must be on the parent folder of these.

The SA administrative map needs to be in the same folder as SA cadastral, the parent folder for the provinces, EC, etc.
