Export to .KML

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Is there a tool available (some sort of ACARS program would be great) that will allow me to create a KML file of a flown flight so that it may be displayed on Google Earth?  This was a FSFK feature that I loved as it showed in detail every turn, altitude change, ground movement etc...Does something like this exist?

 

Thanks,

James

There is this free application for recording your flight data: http://www.aero.sors.fr/GE.html

I haven't used it in ages so can't vouch for the latest version. Lots of other nice utilities at that site (http://www.aero.sors.fr/)

 

Export to KML is an extension developed for ArcGIS by the City of Portland, Bureau of Planning ans Sustainability. The extension allows ArcGIS users to export GIS data in “keyhole markup language” (KML) format for viewing in Google Earth. Any point, polyline, or polygon dataset, in any defined projection, can be exported. Geometry can be exported as either 2D features, or 3D features "extruded" upwards by an attribute or z-value.

Some other features:

  • ability to incorporate ArcMap layer symbology into the exported KML;
  • labeling of point, line, and polygon features;;
  • "describe" individual features using the database attributes (support for HTML in layer and feature -- "balloon" -- descriptions);
  • store database attributes as "schema" items (implements Schema and ExtendedData tags to improve the transferability of the output KML);
  • animate using "time" attributes and KML time stamps;
  • supports coordinate system transformations.

Cheers!
