       kml2gmt - Extract GMT table data from Google Earth KML files


       kml2gmt [ infile ] [ -V ] [ -Z ] [ -:[i|o] ] [ -bo[s|S|d|D[ncol]|c[var1/...]] ]


       kml2gmt  reads a  Google Earth KML file and outputs a GMT table file.  Only KML files that
       contain points, lines, or polygons can be processed.  This is a bare-bones operation  that
       aims  to  extract  coordinates and possibly the name and description tags of each feature.
       The main use intended is to capture coordinates modified in Google Earth and then reinsert
       the  modified  data  into  the  original GMT data file.  For a more complete reformatting,
       consider using ogr2ogr -f "GMT" somefile.gmt somefile.kml.

       infile Name of the KML file to work on.  If not given, standard input is read.


       No space between the option flag and the associated arguments.

       -Z     Output the altitude coordinates as GMT z  coordinates  [Default  will  output  just
              longitude and latitude].

       -V     Selects  verbose  mode,  which  will  send progress reports to stderr [Default runs

       -:     Toggles between (longitude,latitude) and (latitude,longitude) input and/or  output.
              [Default  is  (longitude,latitude)].   Append i to select input only or o to select
              output only.  [Default affects both].

       -bo    Selects binary output.  Append s for single  precision  [Default  is  d  (double)].
              Uppercase  S or D will force byte-swapping.  Optionally, append ncol, the number of
              desired columns in your binary output file.
