I need to create a solution for non-technical people to export data from an ArcMAP document (.mxd) to XML files. I will need each feature's data to be exported in such a way that the output xml file (or could be an Excel file) contains both spatial and non-spatial attributes.
The only I put I see which has the required data is a Google Earth .kmz file. Now, I have been able to convert the .kmz to .kml using some .NET code but the final .kml file is too unstructured to be parsed by my .NET code.
I have tried xToolsPro and they do directly output to .kml file but that doesn't good either--and costs $250 for the license (the export function will expire after the trial).
So what are my options? Could I program some Python script and create some extension to Arctoolbox?
I am stuck! Can't believe this kind of functionally is not built-in (export to xml including Shape data).
