Exporting geolocation artifacts to KML format

If you have neither Internet connection nor Google Earth installed, you can still review geolocation artifacts on a map. To do so, you can export locations to KML format. Select corresponding node in Artifacts or check needed items in a corresponding artifact list, choose Export checked items to Google Earth format in its context menu.

Another option is to choose Create report menu item and opt for KML format in the list of target formats.

As a result, the following XML file in KML format is generated:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2">
 <Document>
  <Placemark>
   <name>https://www.google.com/maps/@51.5039926,-0.1022688,16z?hl=en</name>
   <description />

Such a file contains the place coordinates and their names (URLs or bookmark name used in an app) and does not contain any specific data about the device, its user or your case. It is safe to expose such file to the Internet so you can review its contents in any online KML file viewer.
