Is there a way or work around to incorporate an active KML feed such as the National Hurricane Centers Active KML feed into a map?

    Hey Ben,
    So active KML feeds no - there's reasons for that but they are more academic than pertient. Those files are all static so you can import them if you want.

    However, the good news is that almost all that data appears to be available via a WMS endpoint. There's a list at https://nowcoast.noaa.gov/help/#!section=map-service-list

    WMS sources can be added as Custom Sources for users (and with your team account you can add a custom source layer for the entire team and every user can see it). What you need to do is locate the URL of interest and copy that into our service to be configured (Add Layer - Custom Source - Auto-Configure URL). That should take care of pulling in the data for you.

    If you need specific help let us know!
