Dragging a drone-obtained orthomosaic image saved as a KMZ file (167mb) into QGIS results in the image being very poor resolution. But when KMZ file is loaded into Google Earth, it's very high resolution. Is there a way to covert the KMZ into a TIFF inside QGIS so that I can view the high res image in QGIS?
Easiest way would be to ask the creator of the KMZ to provide you with data fitting QGIS, I guess.– ErikMay 25, 2021 at 10:02
Use something like 7-Zip to crack into the KMZ, copy out the raster file and add that to QGIS. What does that image look like?– GBGMay 25, 2021 at 16:25
Okay as I found there is not an easy route, I used "Mygeodata" convert tool which cost $9. I also reprocessed the original data in webodm. I haven't tried using the 7-zip method mentioned.
Its a shame, as the kzm file in google earth is very easy to work with, and only 160mb. The geotiff produced is 700mb which makes qgis very slow to render.
