Version 1.7.2 of 08/06/2019
Added Export To KML function, to export Source CSV Files of Profile currently loaded in KML Google Earth format (Keyhole Markup Language).
All WayPoints present in every single CSV File will be exported, included extra infos eventually added in Advanced Edit feature (Comment, Street Address, Web site and eMail address, Images).
Export Files CSV to Google Earth KML format
Starting from version 1.7.2 I added the possibility to export CSV Files of current Profile to Google Earth KML format (Keyhole Markup Language).
Pressing the Button "Export To KML" a Window will open with the possibility to select:
The CSV Source File to export.
Name and Path of Destination KML File.
The software reminds the last used Path and suggests the same File Name as the Source CSV File (you can modify it anytime)
Marker Color (well known as PushPin) and CheckBox “Include Images in KML”.
This last one, if activated allows to include in exported File also the images eventually added to each single POI with funcion Advanced Edit
Click on “Export to KML” to create KML File, directly loadable by Google Earth and/or Google Maps
All the information in the CSV File including those added in Advanced Edit mode, ie Comments, Address, Website and Mail address will be inserted in the KML File, and of course the personal image eventually added
Google Earth Note:
Any images included, if present, will be placed in the "images" sub-folder next to your KML file.
Google Earth does not allow the storage of images with relative paths (or better, they are loaded correctly the first time but if the File is saved in "My Places", this link is lost and the images will no longer be displayed correctly).
To overcome this the image files path is absolute (Path complete)
If the files are moved to another location on the disk, in addition to remembering to copy the "images" subfolder as well, the KML file must be reloaded.
Google Maps Note:
KML Files can also be safely uploaded to Google Maps (via the Menu button -> Your Places -> MAPS -> CREATE MAP -> Import).
Google Maps DOES NOT import any Images that may be included, they will be imported manually for each single WayPoint in your KML File.
