Land Cover/Use Data


A KMZ file is a compressed version of a 'Keyhole Markup Language' (KML) file. Google Earth can open KML and KMZ files if these files have the proper file name extension (.kml or .kmz).  KML, is an XML grammar and file format for modeling and storing geographic features such as points, lines, images, polygons, and models for display in Google Earth, Google Maps and other applications. You can use KML to share places and information with other users of these applications.

A KML file is processed by Google Earth in a similar way that HTML and XML files are processed by web browsers. Like HTML, KML has a tag-based structure with names and attributes used for specific display purposes. Thus, Google Earth acts as browsers of KML files.

For further instruction on how to specifically use Google Earth Pro to view LTRM .kmz/kml files, please see the LTRM's Creating and Displaying Spatial Data Using Google Earth Pro help page.
