KMZ to PLY Conversion

We’ve gathered a list of valuable resources, featuring comprehensive guides and expert advice for converting KMZ maps to PLY format using our converters. Study them now to make your KMZ maps conversion easier later.


KMZ Google Earth Placemark File

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

  • ZIP Compression: KMZ files use ZIP compression to reduce the file size and bandwidth usage, making them faster and easier to download and upload compared to KML files.
  • Geometrical Support: KMZ files support point, line string, polygon, and Collada DAE model geometries, which can represent various features and objects on the map.
  • KMZ Converter: KMZ files can be imported and exported by our Automapki Application, which is compatible with AutoCAD, BricsCAD, and ZWCAD. This application enables you to convert your DWG entities, such as point, polygon, curve, polyface mesh, 3D solid, and raster image, to KMZ files, and vice versa.
  • Compatibility: KMZ files can be viewed and edited by various applications and software, such as Google Earth, Google Maps, ArcGIS, QGIS, and more.

PLY Polygon File

A file format specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles along with additional properties such as color, normals, transparency, or texture coordinates. PLY is also known as the Stanford Triangle Format, as it was developed at Stanford University in the early 1990s. PLY has many applications and benefits for 3D graphics, such as:

  • Rich and Customizable Data: PLY is a comprehensive and flexible format for 3D triangles, as it can store not only the geometric information of the triangles, but also the material and appearance information of the vertices and faces. PLY also allows for the definition of custom properties and elements, which can be used to store any additional data that is relevant to the 3D model.
  • PLY File Converter: Autoconverter allows you to convert your 3D models from various file formats, such as STL, SKP, OBJ, DAE, 3DS, STEP, and others, to PLY and vice versa.
  • Binary and ASCII Formats: It’s worth noting that PLY files can be saved in either binary or ASCII text formats. The binary version is generally preferred due to its significant reduction in file size and faster loading speed. However, the ASCII version is more human-readable and easier to edit. Our PLY file converter can handle both formats and convert between them.
