2.47. KML to geodata

Convert KML, KMZ to structured geodata (GeoJSON). This tool can work with attachments (photo) and can parse structured tables added to description of the KML feature.


  • Source data - KML or KMZ file.

  • Table fieldnames - optional. Indicate table fieldnames from Description section of KML file, which should be processed. Should be listed without space and separated by comma.

  • Check for files presence - if checked, the result GeoJSON will mention only the files that are present in the archive indeed.

  • Ignore extended data - if checked, lc:attachment will be ignored.

  • Keep Z coordinate -i f checked, Z coordinate will be preserved and PointZ/LinestringZ etc geometries will be created.


  • ZIP compressed GeoJSON with attachments if any.
