I have a kml file containing over 4000 polygons with attributes which must be retained (in 3 different fields). After using the standard
KML to Layer tool, all the attributes are now in one
PopupInfo field, along with the html code.
The Data Interoperability extension will read KML (including folders and subfolders) and use any schema object defining the attributes. Thus what it writes out will have the correct field definitions. The same goes for writing KML with a schema object, given geodatabase inputs.
What I understand from that is that using the
Quick Import tool will read the KML and export it to a gdb based on a schema which I defined. This seems to be exactly what I want, except I cannot find the option to specify the schema.
I exposed the
kml_name attribute as mentioned in the other question, but the field remained empty. I tried downloading the KML2shapefile plugin with MapWindow, but it is only for 32 bit and I am running 64 bit. I am unable to download the FME trial at work.
