I am finding that more and more I am being sent KML files to be converted into shapefiles to be used for mapping/analysis etc. I am finding it monotonous using the Export KML to Layer tool, then re-exporting the layer (right clicking on layer in ToC and exporting as shapefile.) This seems like a lot of unnecessary work and creates a lot of the dreaded 'temp' files.
I would like to create a model to speed up the process. I am getting stuck however finding a way to export the output layer (from running the Export KML to Layer tool) to a shapefile.
Is there a way to do this? Or alternatively, export the .gdb the is also exported from running the Export KML to Layer tool?
I am also open to suggestions on how to do this using Python!
