ATSB KML Creator

Create a flight path for Google Earth

A software tool that lets you create an aircraft's flight path in Google Earth using basic flight data is now available on the ATSB website.

The ATSB 'KML Creator' uses a spreadsheet of recorded flight parameters (latitude, longitude and altitude) in csv format to create a flight path you can view in Google Earth. The KML Creator can also create a display of other aircraft parameters relevant to the flight on the same screen. The flight can be split into phases differentiated by name and colours. Google Earth Placemarks can be used with the data to identify user-defined important features.

You can find more information about the KML file format from the Google website.

You can now download KML Creator for free.
