More KML conversion scripts

Austria’s Christian Spanring has created an XSLT stylesheet that converts KML to GML. Matt Perry runs with it and creates a command-line script that converts KML to ESRI shapefiles. What’s going on? Now that all the good applications allow exporting to KML, there are all these KML files lying around that people would like to import into their favorite apps. Further evidence of KML as the de facto standard.

One thought on “More KML conversion scripts”

  1. I wouldn’t go so far to call KML a de facto standard. But I do hear more and more people using the word KML along with words like WMS. It definitely became quite an option during the last few months.
