Convert Excel Spreadsheet Data to KML Features

Microsoft Excel spreadsheets typically have many rows of data and it can be daunting to think about how to process all the information. With FME you can extract latitude and longitude coordinates from your XLS or XLSX file to transform your data into a KML file. KML (Keyhole Markup Language) is an easy to use format that makes sharing your data with anyone possible, no matter their data analysis experience.

Transform Your Excel Rows to KML Visuals

Excel worksheets are a common way of storing data and information about various sites and locations. It is easy to create a visual representation of this data by converting each entry into a KML feature with FME. Choose what additional information you would like to have displayed in the pop-up balloons and icons so that your final product appears exactly the way you want it.
