To answer your question: Combine your 2 layers with the Merge tool Just like Michael Miles-Stimson said, use the Simplify Polygon or the Generalize tool to decrease the number of vertices Use the Layer to KML tool to make the conversion

In the Online Help for ArcGIS 9.3.1 there is a page that discusses its KML support: Importing KML into the geodatabase for use in ArcMap, ArcGlobe or ArcScene See the Data Interoperability Extension. Alternatively, see how the user community is supporting KML by reviewing live search results for KML in ArcScripts

I donĀ“t know if ArcMap 9.3.1 has the tool. But there is a Tool called "KML to Layer". You need tho export the temporary layer to shp. If not use this online conversion: http://www.zonums.com/online/kml2shp.php

I think you are seeing that particular error message from this line of your code: arcpy.KMLToLayer_conversion( r"C:\Project\gis\layers" ,r'C:\Project\gis') arcpy.KMLToLayer_conversion expects a file as its first parameter (KML or KMZ) but you are giving it a folder name. You could try concatenating the contents of your filename variable, with the ...

These days you can use Google Earth Pro for free: Note: Google Earth Pro requires a license key. If you do not have a key, use your email address and the key GEPFREE to sign in. Google Earth Pro should be able to load directly your GeoTIFF (and save as something else if you need).

a work around would be to parse the description field for the values of the various attribute fields you need and copy them into the appropriate fields. And next time, get your client to add attributes into an excel spread sheet or something so that you can just join it back to your shapefile for updating.

Here is a guide that I found that walks you through some steps using ArcMap, Google Drive Fusion Tables, and MS Excel to convert KML files to .shp files while preserving the attributes. Link to site that has the guide.

As most of the other posts have mentioned, it doesn't look like KML is directly supported in the Bing Maps Ajax control v7. However, I thought it is worth mentioning that it is supposedly supported in the normal maps GUI. In the following Bing blog post, it describes how one can import a KML into Bing Maps "My Places": Migrating "My Map" from Google to ...

Akio, Unfortunately what you are trying to do is very difficult. I have struggled with this a lot myself, and from what I have found in my search for a similar answer often times led to people suggesting using models with SketchUp or some other modeling software. I did however find one useful page that helped me wrap my mind around some ways around this ...

If you path does not loop back on itself but has a fairly consistent direction you can make an id based on the coordinates. I would use your GIS (ArcGIS) to open the data and convert to a 'standard' gis format (e.g. shapefile) so you can manipulate the data easily without corrupting your original file. Then I'd create a text attribute that concatenates the ...

Download the kml, and go to this page: http://www.zonums.com/online/kml2shp.php you can export here the kml to shape format, and then load to qgis (and change the wgs84 system to epsg27700 (osbg36). Hope it helps.

I checked out the site, and found a good way to do this. KML is not the best format for handling attributes (as you found), but they also allow you to get the data as a CSV, which is a great format. Download the CSV, in QGIS, choose Layer > Add Delimited Text Layer... Pick WKT as the geometry interpreter, and choose the field that says it has WKB geometry ...

Google Maps natively supports KML layers, you simply need to create a new google maps kml layer. Here's an example. As a side note, using Google Earth you can view your kml by simply dragging and dropping the file onto the globe.

If you have access to ArcGIS, you could use Select By Location to select census tracts that are within the city council districts. You will need ArcGIS friendly files for this (ArcGIS is not super KML-friendly, though you can convert from KML with this tool). Census Tracts are available on the the U.S. Census website. City boundary files should not be ...

I'm a little unclear on the question. If you are creating the feature class thorough an API, you can add a KML feature to ArcGIS API. If you are receiving a feature from the API, you can convert that to KML using the conversion tool in ArcMap. Here are a few tips for that.

Try Orux maps. It has the capability to download tiles for offline use, load KML overlays and load raster for background imagery. Not sure though it has all the functionality you need in terms of KML attributes but it is worth a try.

KML files use WGS84 LL by default, so yours should appear correctly positioned with respect to another dataset that you are confident is georeferenced (such a reference dataset is very useful when importing new data) However if the DXF file has not been supplied with any description of the coordinate system used then you have a few options. Ideally you ...
