Currently, it is forcing the polygon to draw at an absolute elevation (looks to be above sea floor?) You can clamp it to the surface, which will essentially 'drape' it over your elevation / DEM. To fix the issue the KML syntax is <altitudeMode>clampToGround</altitudeMode> If you could post some of your raw code, might be able to help with ...

The result are points having the attributes of the grid cell they are within (prefixed with "spj_"). Now the polygons. I suggest to convert them to centroids (Processing -> QGIS ...

One workaround would be the following procedure: Turn off the visibility of the layer that you want to be queried in Google Earth (e.g. parcel) Use "Map to Kml" and make sure to check "Convert Vector to Raster". This will convert all of the visible layers to raster. When using this option, enter the "Map Scale Output" parameter carefully, so your scale ...

Create a folder in which you'll then add the individual kml/kmz files. Go to Save as and in your destination, save this folder as a kml.Your result will be a single kml file. Hope this helps
