Kmz Generator

Component Index > Ladybug > 7 | WIP > Kmz Generator

Use this component to export geometries into an Google Earth file.
It requires Google Earth. You can download it at this link: https://www.google.it/earth/download/ge/agree.html
Once you open kmz file you can continue to update it. This is useful when you change geometries or you want to compare different scenarios.
.
Updating: Just setting again to "True" _writeKmz, after that right click and select "update" on Google Earth.
Special thanks goes to Google and the authors of gHowl.
