I was wondering if it was possible to link Google Earth files (KML, KMZ) to a QGIS project. The main idea would be that if you'd add a point with coordinates in Google Earth, this point would be added to your QGis project or vice versa.

Can this be done?


Rather than linking the two together, use the OpenLayers plugin which allows you to view Google satellite imagery in QGIS.

You can then edit and save your data in QGIS as a KML (right click save as on your layer) and import into Google Earth if required for fly through's / oblique screenshots etc.
