KML Search Tool
Google Earth is one of the most popular applications when it comes to exploring maps and previewing various types of landmarks or tourist attractions. However, if you pair it with a specialized utility like KML Search Tool, you can can enhance its functions even more.
Hassle-free installation and usage
Before you go ahead and install it on your PC, you first need to make sure you already have .NET Framework 4 or later already installed, otherwise you will not be able to enjoy the functions of the app.
The graphic interface is kept as intuitive and minimalistic as possible, so as to allow you to focus on the data you want to look for within KML or KMZ files.
Basically, once you load the source file, you need to enter the keyword you are interested in, such as the name of town or a building, then get a list with all the KML points that match your criterion.
Furthermore, you can also use wildcards or Boolean operators if you need to perform a complex search and you want to enter multiple query terms.
Filter and preview search results
If your search returns too many results, you can narrow it down by relying on filters - for example, you can set KML Search Tool to only find values that are located within a certain postal code range.
After you have applied a restrictive filter, you can run the search again and preview the results in Google Earth; if you are pleased with the outcome, you can export the result list to a file for later use.
All in all, KML Search Tool can come in handy to all users who want to quickly find a certain point within their KML or KMZ file, then preview its location in Google Earth.
