Hi everyone, I recently went through the headache of importing a kml file to a PostGIS database. I had to use ogr2ogr, install the expat library, update my GDAL library, and all of it happened from the command line... it was a difficult process even after I learned the solution.
Since it took me all of Saturday afternoon to accomplish a task that should probably take 15min, I found myself thinking... why isn't there an app for that!? Well, if you want it, I will build it!
The app will have a GUI and use the correct GDAL library including expat and libxml, so you can simply and quickly add KML files to a GIS database. It will look and feel similar to the GUI shape file importer for PostGIS.
As well all know, KML files are becoming more and more common. I certainly could have used this app last Saturday.
Here is the link to purchase the app - http://franklin-page.com/kmlconverter/
It will take about a week to build the application once I get three (3) orders. I will keep you posted on the number of orders so y'all know how close we are. I will also post an update once the app is complete.
