Is there an easy way to draw land plots in google earth using coordinates for each point of the polygon?

  • So you're saying you have lat/long coordinates for each corner and you just want to create a polygon from those points? Is this a one-off operation or do you have a bulk list of land plots you're trying to do all at once? – Chris W Nov 17 '15 at 20:33
  • I have many plots that I want to put on google earth, most are usually rectangular, I have calculated the lat/long coordinates for each corner of the polygon, but in google earth I can't find any option to position the corners using the coordinates. – Denis Nov 17 '15 at 20:40

    My guess is it would be easiest to create a KML file and load that. Could be done by text editing, or you could use QGIS to plot the points, make the shapes, and then export a KML.

  • Those resources are not helpful. The first one, the links are not functioning. The 2nd one, it's even more confusing. – Avery Aug 4 '18 at 7:19
  • This does not provide an answer to the question. Once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post; instead, provide answers that don't require clarification from the asker. - From Review – BERA Aug 4 '18 at 13:39
