I have a .kml file and it opens on my Google Earth Pro. When I tried converting it through ArcMap it didn't work, an error occurred saying it had no data. On further googling about it, I understand that there are 2 types of .kml files. One which has data or feature and the other has a basically a link to the actual file that has the data. Since I have the old one, I need to know how to I convert it into shapefile.
The software(s) I have are ArcMap, QGIS 3, and Erdas Imagine.
