Publishing your drawing or map in Google Earth (one click)


Regardless of the advanced Export capabilities of ‘Spatial Manager’, the applications include a specific function designed to Publish the drawing or map and their data to Google Earth through an instantaneous one-click operation

GIS, Landscaping, Surveying, etc.:

Key features:
1.- One click operation
2.- Only the visible layers will be Published
3.- Splitting by layer plus splitting by object type
4.- Selective Publishing: All the drawing/map or a selection only
5.- Equivalent stylization of lines, polygons, etc.
6.- Publishing the data tables too
7.- Direct opening of the resulting KML or KMZ file in Google Earth (if installed)

The Publishing process considers the current Layers organization and the properties of the Layers and objects. Thus, the elements in the KML/KMZ file will assume the colors, weights, etc. of the objects in the drawing or map

A subdivision based on the type(s) of the objects in the Layers will also be created for each Layer, allowing you a high level of visibility control in Google Earth

The values for the “NAME” and “DESCRIPTION” of the elements in the KML/KMZ file will be automatically taken from the data fields “Name” and “Description” if those exist

SPM-GE_Buttons

If Google Earth is installed on the computer where the Publishing process was performed, you  can open it using a button in the report window. Nevertheless, upon completion of the  process you can open the target file (KML or KMZ) location directly

You can Publish all the objects in a drawing/map, a selection of objects or all the objects in a Layer

Note: The “Publish to Google Earth” functionality is available in the “Standard” and “Professional” editions only
