Expo rt to K M L Extens i on V ers ion 2.5 documentation
Export to KML is an extension developed for ArcMap 9.x by the City of Portland, Bureau of Planning. The extension allows ArcMap users to export any point, line, or polygon dataset in “keyhole markup language” [KML] format for viewing in the free Google Earth data viewer. For more information on KML, please refer to the GoogleCode KML documentation: One note: This is a free product and is not intended to replace the commercial KML tools available for ArcGIS. While I will continue to maintain and improve the extension’s functionality, there are limits to what I am able to do without a substantial investment of time and resources. If you need more sophistication than thistool offers, I encourage you to check out one of the commercial products. One other note: I want to acknowledge all of the users who have reported errors and sent suggestions on how to improve the extension. You’ve made this a much more useful tool… thanks.

You must have local administrative rights on your computer to install the Export to KML ArcMap extension. Also note thatthe directory where the installation files are stored cannot have any spaces in the pathname (or the installation will fail). Important Note: If you are running Windows Vista, you must run the install script from a command prompt with administrative privileges (due to differences in the security model between Vista and XP). There are a couple of ways to do this: 1. navigate to “Start” > “AllPrograms” > “Accessories”, right-click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run as Administrator" from the menu that appears. Navigate to the install batch file and run it from the command line; 2. launch an administrative command prompt in the "Start Search" box by typing "cmd" (no quotes) and press CTRL-Shift-Enter when the "cmd.exe" or "Command Prompt" appears in the list. Navigate to the install batchfile and run it from the command line. Many thanks to Johan in Louisiana for figuring this out!

Make sure you have the latest version of Google Earth installed (Google Earth can be downloaded from Open the ‘Export_to_KML_{versionnumber}.zip’ archive and specify a location for the files to be extracted. Note that an ‘Export_to_KML’ folder will be created in the specified location. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of 'Export to KML', extract the files from the downloaded zip file containing the new version into the same directory as the old version (and allow the old directory and files to be overwritten).Double-click the batch file ‘ExporttoKML_INSTALL.bat’ to register exporttokml.dll and to add the appropriate registry keys.

Note that the “Export to KML” button on the toolbar will not be available until atleast one layer is added to ArcMap. If the “Export to KML” toolbar is not listed in ArcMap after running the installation batch file, you will need to also register the extension directly from ArcMap. In ArcMap, select Tools − Customize, then press the Add from File button. Browse to the 'ExporttoKML.dll' file that was extracted from the downloaded zip archive and select Open. The "Export to KML"toolbar will then be added to the list of toolbars. Browse to View − Toolbars and click the “Export to KML” toolbar to make it visible. Again, the “Export to KML” button on the toolbar will not be available until at least one layer is added to ArcMap To remove the extension, double-click the batch file ‘ExporttoKML_UNINSTALL.bat’.
