KML to GeoJSON Conversion

This list offers valuable resources, filled with step-by-step instructions and expert tips for converting KML maps to GeoJSON format using our converters. Investigate them now to facilitate your KML maps conversion later.


KML Keyhole Markup Language File

A file format that enables you to store and share geographical data with Google Earth and Google Earth Pro. Some of the benefits and features of KML files are:

  • XML Format: KML files use XML to store point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometry, which can be easily edited and customized.
  • KML Converter: KML files can be imported and exported by our Automapki Application, which is compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. This application allows you to convert your DWG entities, such as point, polygon, curve, mesh, 3D solid, and raster image, to KML files, and vice versa.
  • Interoperability: KML files can be viewed and manipulated by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.

JSON GeoJSON Features File

A geospatial data interchange file format that uses JSON syntax. It is designed to store collections of geographic features along with their custom properties. It has the following features:

  • JSON Syntax: The GeoJSON format uses JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), which is a lightweight and human-readable data format. It can store collections of geographic features and their custom properties in a structured and consistent way. It can also be easily parsed and validated by various software applications.
  • Geographic Features: The GeoJSON format can store point, line string, polygon, and multi-geometry representations of geospatial data. These are defined in the WGS84 spatial reference system, which is the standard coordinate system for global positioning. Each feature has a geometry and a set of attributes that describe its properties, such as name, type, area, population, etc.
  • GeoJSON Converter: Automapki Application for AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD allows you to import and export GeoJSON maps directly in your DWG editor. You can combine geospatial data with your CAD designs and visualize them in a map context. Our add-on also supports the automatic conversion of the coordinate systems and the projection of the GeoJSON data onto the georeferenced DWG drawing.
  • Limitation on Appearance: Unlike other map file formats, GeoJSON does not provide a means to define the appearance or style of geographic features. This is an important consideration when planning your geospatial data visualization.
