This document describes how to download your location catalog as KML file for further use in Google Earth or other GIS applications.


The InfoEx system was developed to serve as a central tool for managing your location information. The download function described in this document allows you to retrieve the geometries of all your locations and save them locally in a KML file. You can then use this file in Google Earth and other GIS applications or post it to your company website if you like.

See Downloading your own data for information on how to download your own observations.
