Heeft iemand een volledige beschrijving hoe een kml file te maken van een poly lijn in een cad tekening die dan op de juiste coordinaat komt te liggen in Google earth.
De functie KML naar Google zit wel in het tekeprogramma maar ik kan de beschrijving niet vinden.

Sorry, no one here speaks Dutch but I hope these pictures answer your question:

Export to Google Earth then select entities....

You can set the longitude latitude, also units etc in the next box...

There is actually a new video for progeCAD 2009 which includes a quick (I mean quick) demo using Google Earth export from progeCAD:

I hope that helps!

Hi Jan Dirk de Heus,

I don't understand now the problem. Our previous post already shows how to "be placed on the right spot" in Google Earth. You just enter the degrees longitude and latitude as shown in the box for your selection to be placed. Y=North, X=East & Z="up". You must select the correct UNITS so that "10 to 50 kilometer long" lines will be proportioned correctly in Google Earth.
