A Python library to covert KML files to GeoJSON files
kml2geojson is a Python 3.8+ package to convert KML files to GeoJSON files. Most of its code is a translation into Python of the Node.js package togeojson, but kml2geojson also adds the following features.
Preserve KML object styling, such as color and opacity
Optionally create a style dictionary cataloging all the KML styles used
Optionally create several GeoJSON FeatureCollections, one for each KML folder present
Create a Python 3.8+ virtual environment and run poetry add kml2geojson.
Use as a library or from the command line. For instructions on the latter, type k2g --help.
In the docs directory and published at mrcagney.github.io/kml2geojson_docs.
Development status is Alpha.
This project uses semantic versioning.
Thanks to MRCagney for funding this project.
If you want to help develop this project, here is some background reading.
Extended convert() to accept a KML file object.
Added type hints.
Updated dependencies and removed version caps.
Dropped support for Python versions less than 3.8.
Switched from Travis CI to Github Actions.
Re-included the MIT License file and added more metadata to the file pyproject.toml for a more informative listing on PyPi.
Upgraded to Python 3.9 and dropped support for Python versions < 3.6.
Switched to Poetry.
Breaking change: refactored the convert function to return dictionaries instead of files.
Moved docs from Rawgit to Github Pages.
Fixed the bug where setup.py could not find the license file.
Moved the name of a FeatureCollection into a ‘name’ attribute, because RFC 7946 says that a GeoJSON FetaureCollection must not have a ‘properties’ attribute
Stripped leanding and trailing whitespace from text content to avoid cluttered or blank name and description attribute values
Switched to pytest for testing
Moved command line functionality to separate module
Renamed some functions
Disambiguated filenames in main().
Improved to_filename() again.
Improved to_filename() and removed the lowercasing.
Tweaked to_filename() to lowercase and underscore results. Forgot to do that last time.
Changed the output of build_layers() and moved layer names into the GeoJSON FeatureCollections
Replaced underscores with dashes in command line options
Set default border style for colored polygons
Tweaked the command line tool options
Changed some names
Added lots of tests
Fixed packaging to find README.rst
