The individual regional mappers have their own set of requirements/preferences for mapping/tracing via GE4. Especially the offset and such.

As pointed out by sabre23t, you need to wait for sunn to response.

Let me try to help you (if I am not wrong myself). You convert the kml file to gdb using babel etc. You
then open this newly converted gdb file in Mapedit. In Mapedit, you transfer all the gdb file data to
mapedit mp files. Otherwise you get yourself a licensed copy of Mapedit and digitise directly into mp file.

Like Bart said, you convert it to gpx or gdb. You can map it yourself using mapedit or you can send the gpx/gdb and if possible the mp to the mapper of your area for inclusion into the map or you can build your own map
