converting kml into a vector graphic… and back – Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange

Is there a simple means to convert, say, an svg or other vector image format file to KML and vise versa? There are incredibly powerful vector editing tools which attempt to replicate the way reality works, or at least the way it presents itself to the artist's eye. GIS manipulation tools are much more focused on the data itself, as opposed to the 'whys' of the data. There are cases where I would like to import a kml file into GIMP or Fireworks, re-touch it, and convert it back. Anyone? This tool converts Google Earth files(kml and kmz) into vectorial SVG files, usable in Inkscape, Illustrator and other software. Visio supports insertion of SVG files, but for some reason it didn't work, so I had to go via Inkscape.

It is interesting to point that they are both XML, so, in a way, they are 'almost the same stuff' (although quite different, of course). It should basically involve two-way mapping each equivalent datatype from one domain to the other. One interesting food for thought would be to map KML styles to CSS styles and back... This tool converts Google Earth files(kml and kmz) into vectorial SVG files, usable in Inkscape, Illustrator and other software. folders placemarks (points, lines, polygones, multigeometries and embeded images) tours Sketchup resources (depending of the resources..) Mercator, Miller, Cylindrical Equal-Area (Lambert, Behrmann, Tristan Edwards, Peters, Galls, Balthasart), Cylindrical Equidistant, Sinusoidal, Van der Grinten I, Polyconic, Albers Equal-Area Conic, Conic Equidistant, Bonne, Lambert Conformal Conic, Lambert Azimuthal Equal-Area, Cassini claims to be able to, 'Crop, reproject, and merge/mosaic any combination of raster data and elevation data' and '...edit existing vector features. Newly created and edited features can be saved to any of the supported export formats. Shapes like rectangles, circles, ellipses, arcs, buffers around existing features, and concentric range rings can be easily created.' Now I need $350... meh. You'd need an editor which could work with geo coordinates instead of simple X,Y ones. Or you would need to reproject coordinates when converting. Converting from KML to SVG would mean potentially losing KML-specific information which is not stored by the SVG format. Source.
