I'm trying to create a kmz-file from a image raster layer but in order to make the resolution of the file alright I have to choose something like 3000 pixels and 3000 dpi and I end up with a large file (8.3MB). I am using Layer To KML in ArcGIS Pro. I have an other map from an other data set which only takes up about 250KB but has a similar resolution, at least that's my visual interpretation. The maps areas are covering a same size area of 10x10 km. WHY are they so different in size and HOW can I reduce the size of the large file? I really need to make it smaller. ANY suggestions are welcome. I'm loosing my mind... Thank you!

Hi, I am working on a project where I need to map Norway and convert map tiles into .kml files. I have used an open source raster map from the Norwegian company Kartverket. The files are in GEOtiff-format. I split the files into 10x10km tiles and uses the "layer to KML" tool to convert them. My problem is that I need to make the resolution very large pixels 15 000 and dpi 5000, in order for the quality to be acceptable. The problem is that I end up with large .kmz files (about 15MB). I have access to similar files for maps over Sweden. These are around 250 KB. Which is what I would like the other files to be like aswell. Do you guys have ANY idea of what I can do in order to shrink the file size? When I use lower values for the resolution when converting to .kmz, the images ends up with a horrible resolution where you can't even read labels on the map... I attach example files. One for Norway and one for Sweden. Any explanation, discussion or suggestion is much appreciated, Sofia Andersson
