Transfer Google Earth KML Placemarks to ArcGIS (.shp)
KML to SHP conversion takes just two clicks in ExpertGPS. Now you can transfer KML to your GIS software and convert Google Earth places and routes to layers in ArcGIS. You can copy KML placemarks from your My Places folder in Google Earth and paste them directly into ExpertGPS. Or, you can open any KML file in ExpertGPS by clicking Import on the File menu. Then, click Export to save the KML data to ESRI's SHP format. ExpertGPS Pro automatically reprojects the KML data to the coordinate format you're using in your GIS software. ExpertGPS supports US state plane coordinates, UTM, lat/lon, and dozens of other coordinate grids.
Unlike other KML - SHP converters that can't upload and download your GPS data, ExpertGPS is a complete solution that will download KML and SHP files to your GPS receiver in two easy steps.
