Share KML Data Simply as a PDF

Less is More

KML files can be displayed and easily created in free Earth viewers like Google Earth. Although convenient, KML files are typically displayed over detailed satellite imagery, which is not always necessary. By converting a KML to PDF you can continue to share data easily, but in an even more simple way. With FME you can complete this conversion and choose what components you would like to display, and how you want to display them.
