#'Convert kml to polygon
#'@description Create an sp SpatialPolygon or SpatialPolygonDataFrame object from a downloaded KML file and data file
#'@param map_df a map dataframe generated from create_map_df()
#'@param df a climate dataframe with one piece of data to be mapped to each unique spatial polygon.
#'@param crs_string Coordinate reference string to use in spatial projection.  Default is WSGS84.
#'@return a SpatialPolygon object
#'@details If a dataframe is included, a spatial polygon dataframe object is created.  The dataframe must have one unique piece of information per polygon, otherwise an error will be thrown.  However just a basic spatial polygon will be created if no dataframe is included.
