Overview

KMLer is the ArcGIS extension for professional work with Google Earth. We recommend using this module with our free Typeconvert extension.
KMLer Plus also supports additional functionality at description building.
KMLer Pro also supports additional 3d features, LOD, Fade in Google Earth.
Create overlays function in KMLer Pro supports Superoverlay projects creation now directly from your ArcMap project. You should only download and install Superoverlay 1.7.x or later and use your KMLer Pro license to obtain standard Superoverlay version.

  • More info about KMLer see in Docs

If you have problems by installation then see this page.

To install the geoprocessing tools:
1. Open ArcCatalog and search folder of KMLer. By default it is
C:\Program Files\GISCenter\KMLer\
2. You see toolbox KMLer. Right click on toolbox and select "Add to Toolbox". The KMLer toolbox stored in Toolbox.

 Functionality

Quick frame export

Convert all layers (vectors, rasters, TINs) of current frame into Google Earth *.kml or *.kmz files with same styles. You can output visible layers only and use Markers and Labels scale factor. You can use this command also in the geoprocessing tools.

Export to KML

Convert vector layers into Google Earth *.kml or *.kmz files.
Note: Export to KML works with current selected layer. If more than one layer is selected, it works with the first selected layer. Symbol style (fill color, outline color, outline width etc.) of the selected layer is stored to created KML. In case you use the categories legend (unique values, graduated colors) corresponding style is applied to each object. You can use commands group, remove, create header and reorder in Symbology window.
Google Earth file path: set path, name and type (kml or kmz) of output file.
Option Convert each object as a placemark: Enable only for line and polygon geometries. For points is always checked. If this option is checked, placemark is created for each geometry object, otherwise the multigeometry placemark is created. All data are adapted for use in GE Plus and Pro. It supports "Apply Style Template...". For lines and polygons additional label placemarks are created automatically.
Option Labels Only: include in KML file only labels with description for lines and polygons geometry.

Definition of structure KML:
Option Group By: If this option is checked, placemarks are distributed to folders, according to selected class legend or field. You can select other layers and make flexible structure as crosstabs with same legend. You can duplicate layer and change legend. Results include colors from selected in TOC layer and structure by legend of duplicate layer.
Option Order By: If this option is checked, placemarks are sorted in folders, according to select field.
From Label field, containing list of visible fields, you select placemark labels.
List Group folder type make Normal, Radio or Hidden children type of placemarks.

Group Add to description
Make parameters to each placemark balloon.
Option Fields values: Add all visible fields to balloon.
Option Search link: Add Google Search link to a placemark balloon.
Option Maps link: Add Google Maps link to a placemark balloon.
Option Feature class metadata: Enable only for imported from Google Earth feature class. Adds description from metadata.

Description builder (PLUS and PRO only)
Create enhanced balloons. You can add HTML tags and attributes of source layer. Import fields, URL, descriptions from other files (kml, kmz etc). You can save and load description from XML-based file.

Expression builder
Can make calculated string, JScript or VBscript ( PLUS and PRO only ). We can use expression for labels and baloons.

Region LOD options (PRO only)
Create Region and LOD tags of KML2.1 in network links.

Time options
Create TimeSpan, TimeStamp and When tags by attributes.

Group Extrude options: contain altitude mode list and define how Z values will be set.
Option Extrude: activate 3D group.
Subgroup Based on: include parameters of extrude and button Custom options (Pro only) for open extended dialogue.

Custom 3D option (PRO only)
Power vertical surfaces maker.
Attribute field is selected from numeric visible data fields or directly in dialogue.

Group Marker Labels make custom size and type this objects.

Button Marker style (Pro only) open window for make custom markers style.

Button Define pair style (Pro only) open window for make hightlight markers style.

Option Separate on files by group condition need for distribution one to more KML files. Network link to KMZ (KML) files create automatically.

Option Open in Google Earth
Automatically opens results in Google Earth and zooms to it.

Import from KML

Convert data from Google Earth vector files to ArcMap layers. Support multiply import of *.kml and *.kmz files to *.shp files or geodatabase. Create a feature class for each found schema and geometry type. Add all attributes to new created layer. Stored last output location. This tools supply of two-directional vectors data exchange

Create overlays

Create overlays from checked rasters. You can stored rasters into KMZ or make absolute path.

Region LOD options (PRO only)
Create tags of KML2.1 (superoverlay) in network links.

Export TIN

Create 3d KML file with simple and fast geometry.
Supported options - vertical scale, offset, altitude units, altitude mode.

Screen operations

Export screen
Save current screen of ArcMap data view as overlay with coordinates. Open overlay in Google Earth. This tools supply GE by all current and future web services, who support by ArcMap. All results store into images overlay.

Import screen
Import current Google Earth screen shots as grayscale raster. The envelope of a new raster is stored to current ArcMap project as graphics.

Navigation (Free)

Set view in GE
Zoom Google Earth to current ArcMap view.

Get view from GE
Zoom ArcMap to current Google Earth view.

Get points from terrain

Get matrix of points from terrain. Create vector grid of 3d points from current view of Google Earth. Z values calculates from terrain data of current view. Terrain from GE more exact than "standart" DEM SRTM dats. It is exclude many errors by calculate of slope, aspect and other parameters by surface modeling and 3D visualization. We strongly recommende to use GE terrain dats.

Z-service

Return Z values for current feature class from GE Terrain. Z values return into all vertex of source feature class. Also middle Z value return as attribute. User can set a percent of loading and altitude's range ("Eye altitude") of a view. By check Centroid's Z only service return Z values in centers points of objects. See flash animation as simple primary example for one point.

Shooting on route

Professional tools for multiply (batch) operations.

Export screens
Export screens along a route. Each screen is a current active view extent that is centered at the each point of a route.
Names, scale, extension and size of raster files define by first image. Names of rasters define as Name_1, Name_2 ...
Make raster's coverages from ALL ESRI services, who visible in ArcMap (current time and near future).

Import screens
Import of rasters (GE screenshots) along a route.
Output location set folder of rasters with names Name_1, Name_2...

Terrain points
Get matrix of the 3d points from terrain along a route.
Output location set folder for the 3D points with class names Name_1, Name_2...
