KML to CSV?

 

can someone please tell me how to do this? I have a google earth KML file that I want to make into a CSV. I have PoiEdit but idk how to use it.

This is the link to the Google KML file

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&om=1&z=4&msid=1...

it just has a network link in the file...there are no locations and I dont know how to get PoiEdit to read it

Thanks!

From the POI Edit 2007 Menu

From the POI Edit 2007 Menu Bar

1) Tools --> Batch Converter

This will open "PoiEdit Batch Convert..." window

2) At the bottom far left of the window under the heading "Source Format:" select "Google Earth(*.kml)"

3) At the upper left pick your "Source Directory" of the .kml files

4) Select the files

5) At the upper right pick your "Destination Directory:"

6) At the bottom right select the "Destination Format:". In this case "Garmin Comma Separated (*.csv)"

7) Finally press the "Convert" on the far left bottom.

It's a pretty simple procedure once you have done it once.

Note: POI Edit will not convert .kmz files (use Google Earth to save .kmz files as .kml)

I followed the excellent step-by-step instructions above but I encountered the same problem described here. An empty CSV file. What procedure did you use to fix this issue? How exactly did you "copy all locations from one KML to another"? Thank you!

worked great thanks!

This worked great, thanks! The key is to get the locations out of the network folder and directly into "My Places." Then the above step-by-step instructions work great!
