ESurvey KML: One Step Data Exchange between Google Earth and CAD

ESurvey KML-Convert Drawings to Google Earth Files

  One step data exchange between Google Earth and CAD

ESurvey KML-Convert Drawings to Google Earth Files

Google Earth is a geo-browser which represents the earth as a three-dimensional globe. It is great tool to explore earth imagery. On the other side CAD package which works with UTM is more convenient to represent 2-D drawings. Converting data available in google earth in the form of KML file to 2 dimensional drawing data and vice versa is possible with ESurvey KML.

ESurvey KML (Export) - Export your CAD data to google earth readable format (KML File)
ESurvey KML (Import) - Import Places information from Google Earth KML File to your CAD package
3D KML- Create 3D maps from 2D drawing by inserting respective 3D blocks and defining extrusion elevation for each Layer

Works with ESurvey Sections, ESurvey CAD as a plugin to generate 3D drawings and 3D KML from those softwares.
Example KMZ output from ESurvey KML
