ESRI Maps for Office is another solution to present geospatial data in Powerpoint. It allows you to use web maps from ArcGIS Online as dynamic slides within any PowerPoint presentation.
While the question has been answered very well (and this is very late), here's an "aesthetic" solution for those getting here via Google (like me) that I just did recently for a Powerpoint: (1) Insert screenshot of the KML in Google Earth to the Powerpoint (2) Right click the screenshot to add Hyperlink...
I think the closest thing to scale dependent layers in KML is Regions. However, Layer To KML does not write them and I do not think they would support the concept of scale dependent labels. There is a document on KML support in ArcGIS that mentions that regions are not written. Examples of KML items not supported in exported KML files include ...
Like PolyGeo said, Open layer properties Click the 'Fields' Tab Make sure only the fields you want in your KMZ are checked Give those fields an alias When you run the layer to KML tool it will only export the headings you want. An example can be seen HERE
As such, the .osm format is a very simple format. It just contains the various nodes, and then the ways that are formed from these nodes. You could whip up some custom code which does this, quite easily. Additionally, there are quite a few libraries/projects which can be used to convert from .osm format to shapefiles; Many of them have been linked on this ...
Check out the open-source GDAL/OGR utilities - (the OGR part) http://www.gdal.org/ogr2ogr.html ogr2ogr.exe is a command-line tool which can be used in the FOR loop in a batch file to go through all your files and transform them. (for example in windows you create a *.bat file and put your DOS code for looping there). In the OGR link above there is also a ...
Have you tried the MicroDEM? It's free, and I have heard it works great at this, but have not used it myself. http://www.usna.edu/Users/oceano/pguth/website/microdem/microdem.htm
You should be able to do this task in a variety of GIS applications. Here's a step-by-step for QGIS. Download QGIS from: http://www.qgis.org/ Import the KML or GPX polyline (Layer > Add vector layer...). Import the elevation data (Layer > Add raster layer...) Either: create a buffer area around the polyline (Vector > Geoprocessing tools > Buffer(s)) Or: ...
The free level of CartoDB could easily handle what you're trying to do- very powerful and simple to use so far. Leaflet or the new MapBox.js tools are powerful but more work to learn over basic CartoDB. Simple MapBox hosted maps could work for you too- they are fun to play with! Otherwise try geocommons for a hosted but feature rich option for less developer ...
