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.


  • Input dataset in KML/KMZ format.

  • NextGIS Drive ID or link (if you have access)

  • Table fields. Comma-separated list of table field names to be extracted from the description.

  • Check files presence. If checked, the result will contain only the files that are present in the archive.

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

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


  • ZIP compressed GeoJSON with attachments if any.
