The API gives you the KmlLayer class, which "creates a KmlLayer which renders the contents of the specified KML/KMZ file". Just pass the URL you're given in the KmlLayerOptions.

I usually do this using QGIS. I load the kml layer, save as shapefile and add the columns that are necessary for rendering. Then I open a connection to my postgis database, delete everything inside the current view, and copy-and-paste the kml data into the postgis layer. I have created a separate bboxdb inside postgis for such cases, so my original osm ...

In my work, I combine SpatiaLite and the JTS library to display large shapefiles(SpatiaLite r-tree) and so far so good! My offline map base is OSM-Android or RMaps. Sorry for my poor English.

I found the solution using ArcGIS. In ArcMap before you export the layer, you need to set some specifications rightly for the exported kml file properties. Go to Layer properties, then from the HTML Popup tab uncheck "Show content for this layer using the HTML Popup tool" check-box. Then convert in any means X-tools or ArcToolbox to kml doen't matter.

You could save out the KML and then use notepad++ to do a search and replace using regular expressions. So in notepad++ I would use: and in the replace tab just place <description></description>

I had the same problem today. Using the built-in Layer to KML tool and XTools didn't produce a nice image. But i brought in my georeferenced image into Global Mapper and it worked much better without any blurriness. Edit: I created the KML/KMZ in Global Mapper. I loaded the JPG, then used File, Export, Export Web Format. I checked on the Super Overlay Setup ...

No, there is currently no way to full import 3D city models into OSM. The reason is, that OSM 3D abilities use a completely different approach for 'semi 3D' micromapping, while existing formats as City GML use pure 3D models. If you want to mix both aspects, you need to export an OSM 3D model and export your properitary 3D model and combine both in a open ...

OK, so step 1 (getting the outline of all of them) is nice and easy. All you need is to go in QGIS to Vector->Geoprocessing Tools->Dissolve Which will open the dialog for the "Dissolve" tool. Set your layer as the "Input Vector Layer", select a "Dissolve Field" that is the same for all of the features in the layer (I chose "tesellate"), create a ...

My favorite app for doing these kinds of things is Locus map free. It can import KML file amongst many other formats, and can work completely offline. If you need a base map, you can either download it within the app (for a fee) or add your own data either in mbtiles, or one of the other myriad formats that it supports.

Most GIS desktop software apps have ability to plot table or csv data based on lng/lat or x/y values to generate a point event layer. Event layers may then be exported to a GIS layer (e.g. shapefile), and then you may run a spatial analysis interpolation tool or script to create the raster surface similar to your link example. Finally, these raster layers ...

At the Genealogy & Family History Stack Exchange I just found that: There is a software program called Family Atlas (www.familyatlas.com) that will import data from a variety of sources, including GEDCOM. If the coordinate of an event place is included, it will use it. Otherwise it will look up a coordinate based on the place name. It has ...

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gedcomtokml/ should do the GEDCOM to KML conversion. You can find the info on it here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Map_My_Ancestors It seems straightforward enough.

Changed browser from Google chrome to firefox it all works now

Create your own local server, kml file needs an http:// and then make sure the dashboard runs in firefox, google chrome could not display the data.

I found a blog posting entitled KML / KMZ data import into MySQL for use with GIS functions by Romain which looks like it will do much of what you are asking. For demonstration purposes, the KML polygons will be inserted into a simple table storing a string and a matching polygon definition.

If you do not have a GIS Package yet, QGis is an excellent and free Application that will let you load up all your files and overlay them on top of each other so you can see exactly what is in them. KML and Shapfiles could contain the exact same data, however KML is much more suited to displaying time based track information, whereas shapefiles are more ...

One way of approaching this is with the following technologies: Server with PostGres/PostGis, GeoSever and a Web Server installed. (Could be a windows desktop machine using IIS) This will allow you to import the shape files and KML files into a database with geometries and create layers to present to the end user You will need to build tables of vehicles ...

This sort of thing is what humans are good at but computers aren't good at. One approach that may help is sorting the points in clockwise order, this will give you mostly what you want but will still need some manual intervention with a software package like ArcGis or QGIS. In essence find the leftest point (lowest X), if two are colinear then the one with ...
