I received a KML file, rather large (1.5 GB). I tried to convert it to polygon feature using KML to Layer function. After some time ArcMap crashes. Out of memory. We observed that the 3.2 GB RAM was reached pretty quickly. Is there a work around?
Splitting the kml is the best workaround. ArcGIS 10.2.2 isn't 64 bit
It is probably too big...and there was a warning in the help files
Include ground overlay (raster, air photos, and so on). Use caution if the KMZ points to a service that serves raster imagery. The tool will attempt to translate the raster imagery at all available scales. This process could be lengthy and possibly overwhelm the service.
Thanks for the response. I only want raster foot prints and text attributes for the output. Is there any way to exclude the rasters from the process?
from my reading if you are using the default no_groundoverlay then you should be good, otherwise the file is too large
yes, that is what I have been using.Hope there is a work around. The error message indicates that operating sysytem need to looked into. Does version 10.2 (which I believe is 64 bit) help?
Thanks Dan. Would you also let me know how to split the KML? Can it be done in ArcMap (tools for that)?
none seen...google earth?
