I'm wanting to import land features, such as lakes, reservoirs and other land-made features onto my ArcMAP. Is that possible as this is new with my client wanting this done.

What needs to be done as I've been researching this.

Thank You,

Am I correct, that you need the ArcGLOBE extension to do the KML for Google Earth? I do not have that extension, is there anothe way to go around it? – Zoran Jan 16 '11 at 16:57
No - ArcGlobe is only required if you want it in 3D like Google Earth – Mapperz Jan 17 '11 at 15:29

Use KML to Layer in ArcGIS 10
