A Python 3.4 tool kit for converting KML files to GeoJSON files

Project description

This is a Python 3.4 command-line program to convert KML files to GeoJSON.

Much of the code is a translation into Python of the KML converter in the Node.js package togeojson. But kml2geojson also adds the following features.

  • Preserves KML object styling, such as color and opacity
  • Optionally writes one JSON file cataloging all the KML styles used
  • Optionally creates several GeoJSON files of FeatureCollections, one for each KML folder


pip install kml2geojson


At the command line type kml2geojson --help for instructions.


In docs and on RawGit here.


  • Development status: Alpha
  • This project uses semantic versioning (major.minor.micro), where each breaking feature or API change is considered a major release. So the version code reflects the project’s change history, rather than its development status. In particular, a high major version number, does not imply a mature development status.
