Publishing to Google Earth

Export all or part of the elements in the visible Layers of the map and their data to a KML or KMZ file

Spatial Manager Desktop™ includes a specific function designed to Export all or part of the objects in the visible Layers of the map and their data, to a KML or KMZ file (Google Earth) through a one-click operation

The current Layers organization and the properties of the Layers and features are considered when creating the resulting GE file, and this file can be opened directly in Google Earth (if installed)

Quick creation and use

Regardless of the advanced Export capabilities of the application the user will find a specific tool to Export all or part of the objects in the visible Layers of the map and their data, to a KML or KMZ file (Google Earth) through a one-click operation. In addition, it is possible to open the file directly in Google Earth (if installed)

Clone the map

The process will consider the current Layers organization and the properties of the Layers and objects. The elements in the KML/KMZ file will assume the colors, weights, etc. of the objects in the map. A subdivision based on the types of the objects in the Layers will be also created for each Layer
