I am preparing the map of Nepal with 75 districts using the KMZ file downloaded from global admin. I opened the KMZ file (NPL_admin3.kmz) in google earth pro. I produced the map, and also worked successfully with coloring the districts. But I could not put the name of the 75 districts in the map. In other GIS tools such as DIVA or Quantum, when we 'add label' under the 'layer' menu bar, we get the name associated to the boundary. But in google earth pro, I have been facing difficulty. Can anyone please help me?
Try this. Rename your kmz to zip. Open the zip and rename the kml to txt (or just use open with).
With your kml open in notepad or some other text editor look for the part of the html that says "LabelStyle" and change the "scale" number (Mine said 0 and I changed it to 0.666667) delete the entry for anything else (mine had color set to a string of 0's). Save the edited text file and rename back to kml. Save the modified zip file and rename to kmz. This worked for me... some variation will likely work for you, but dynamic labels are what they are. I just let it label with the field it had already defaulted to... which in my case was a useful field... but you might need to modify something else in the html in your case.
rename your zip to kmz and open in GE
I experienced this issue with a kml file produced from ArcGIS tool Layer to KML. In my case, the label "scale" and "opacity" properties were set to zero for all features. I figured out a way to solve the issue through the Google Earth interface. By right-clicking on the layer (or individual features) and going to "Properties", then clicking on the "Style, Color" tab, I was able to get my labels to show by increasing the scale to e.g. 1 and the opacity to e.g. 100%. This is basically what @Mike is doing programmatically by opening the KML as a zip/text file.
