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.
  • Interoperability: KML files can be viewed and manipulated by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.

KML Files 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.


JSON CityJSON File

A file format for the efficient storage and exchange of 3D city models and landscapes. It has the following benefits and features:

  • Optimized CityGML: The CityJSON format is based on CityGML, which is an OGC standard for representing and exchanging 3D urban data. However, CityJSON is optimized for simplicity and efficiency, using JSON instead of XML as the underlying syntax. CityJSON reduces the file size and complexity of CityGML files, making them easier to process and manipulate.
  • 3D City Data: The CityJSON files can store 3D city models and landscapes, which are composed of various city objects, such as buildings, roads, bridges, vegetation, etc. Each city object has a name, a geometry, and a set of attributes. The format also supports nested hierarchy, reusable geometry component instances, and custom materials with texture images, which enhance the realism and detail of the 3D city data.

CityJSON Files Converter: Autoconverter allows you to import and export CityJSON files, and convert them into various other 3D mesh file formats, such as STL, OBJ, SKP, 3DS`, etc. Our software supports the reading and writing of CityJSON geometries with custom attributes, which preserve the semantic information of the 3D city data.
