KML to Shapefile – Conversion

In this post we are going to discuss that how KML to Shapefile conversion can be done. KML is the file extensions used in Google applications, specifically Google Earth and Google Maps and  Shapefile is a file format which is  mainly used in software like ESRI ArcGIS and ArcView.

Conversion Of GIS data like KML to Shapefile can be so easy with the help of online conversion tool, as We have already talked about the data conversion with the offline ogr2ogr conversion and we know how much time consuming process it is.

KML to Shapefile – Conversion

A .KML file is a text based file composed of Tags similar to .XML or .HTML. KML data which is used in software like Google Earth and GPS devices can be converted with one click to Esri Shapefile format used in software like  like ESRI ArcGIS and ArcView, With the help of IGIS Map Converter.

IGIS Map Converter also supports more other vectors and rasters GIS/CAD formats and more than 4000 coordinate reference systems. If the coordinate system of your input data is not present or not recognized correctly, it is possible to assign the correct one. IGIS Map Converter makes it possible to transform your data to any other coordinate reference system.

Here are some of the main process in converting KML to Shapefile using IGIS Map Converter.

  • Go to IGIS Map Tool login if already registered otherwise sign up.
  • Tap on switch to button on top right side, drop down list will open then choose converter shown in below screen.

KML to Shapefile - Conversion

  • After clicked on convertor , GIS Convertor page will open then just drag or upload your KML file from your system or access the file from Google Drive or Dropbox.

  • Once the file upload is completed, select the output file format we want to convert it into i.e. Esri Shapefile. and for setting up the conversion process set the Coordinate Reference System accordingly and Convert the file.

KML to Shapefile - Conversion

  • Now we have successfully converted KML to Shapefile, Now you can download the file and shapefile will publish on map to see the content in the file or to check the conversion.

3.) Natural Earth Data:

“Natural Earth is a public Domain Map data-set available at at 1:10m(Large scale data), 1:50m(medium scale data), and 1:110 million scales (Small Scale data).” Cultural, physical and raster category data can be downloaded from each scale. Data can be downloaded as shapefile (shp) or GeoDB or as SQLite. Natural Earth is maintained by Nathaneiel V. KELSO and Tom Patterson. Here is the screenshot of shapefile from QGIS (Quantum GIS) tool of 1:10m all shapefile layers uploaded at once.

Convert Shapefile to kml by QGIS

Convert Shapefile to kml by QGIS. Shapefile is ESRI based Vector file, While KML or Keyhole Markup Language is file which models and stores geographic features for display in Google Earth or Google maps. Many times you may require to convert the required shapefile to KML file, so that you can deploy the same over Google Earth for some reason. QGIS (Quantum GIS) is an open source GIS (Geographic Information System) tool, which let you upload the Shapefile and convert the same to KML file. Similarly ogr2ogr is also an open source tool, which let you to convert between GIS data formats. Look over shp to kml convert using ogr2ogr tool which can be marked as an alternative to this article. You can also see to convert Kml to Shapefile and also Shapefile to GeoJSON in QGIS.

You can also go through other tutorial in QGIS.
