Importing KML and KMZ data

    Follow

    I have great deal of teaching data  in KMZ and KML format.  I would like to import my data into TLE to use as layers, in both desktop and Scidome platforms. 

    Any ideas and thoughts are greatly appreciated.

     

    Thanks!

      Hi Rob, 

       

      You certainly can import your KMZ/KML files.  This is what you need to do:

       

      1.  Create a folder called Dynamic here:

      On Windows:

      Layered Earth\Earth Data\Layers\Dynamic

      On Mac:

      Right-click the TLE ---> Show Package Contents ---> Contents/Resources/Earth Data/Layers/Dynamic

      2.  Add your KMZ/KML files to the Dynamic folder.

      3.  Open TLE ---> Look in the bottom left corner under layers ---> Check your layer to run.

       

      Please let me know if this helps.

       

      Kind regards,

       

      Keiron

      Hi Keiron,

      That appears to have done the trick.  I will push the envelope more during the week and see if I choke TLE.  "Reset" has never failed me!  The intent of course is to see what is reasonable and effective use.  So far the point data I put in plot exactly where I took it in the field!

      Now that I seem to have figured out how to ask questions, I have a number of other operational ideas.  Unless you prefer otherwise, I will ask them on the forum  just like this so you get them in your database. 

      I will try the same trick on Preflight and Renderbox on the Scidome.  I will let you know how that goes.

      You made my week!

      Thanks,

      Rob
