Is there a simple means to convert, say, an svg or other vector image format file to KML and vise versa?
There are incredibly powerful vector editing tools which attempt to replicate the way reality works, or at least the way it presents itself to the artist's eye. GIS manipulation tools are much more focused on the data itself, as opposed to the "whys" of the data.
There are cases where I would like to import a kml file into GIMP or Fireworks, re-touch it, and convert it back. Anyone?
