Need help creating a KML file from some census data. Small $$ offering
Posted 23 March 2009 - 12:04 AM
I have a .csv file with a list of contiguous census blocks (labeled by STFID). I was wondering if someone could take this file and merge it with the block shape files or tiger files, merge the blocks all into a single shape to export to a KML.
I lack both the software and the technical knowledge to do this. I only have access to Arcview 3.2.
If someone here can do it I can offer you $100 (or $100 to your fav charity). I'm guessing this is around a 20 minute job for most of you familiar with the data and the formats.
The .csv is located here: http://www.braynardw....com/al_sd7.csv
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your help.

I'll give it a shot with ArcGIS 9.3.
But the csv file has the same attribute for every district ("7 ")?
Do you have the shapefile at hand, too?
Hi - yes. I only want to create the KML for one district - I just want one blob when I overlay it in Google Maps.
The shape file - I believe it is attache See the attached.
Thanks so much.

I did a inner between the shape and the csv file.
Let me know if you need any more help with it. Or if I screwed totally up...
Thank you - and that audobon society thanks you too

This is my first ever posting here, so go easy on me. I'm not sure exactly what you're after, but I've converted your shape file to a KML in a way that includes the data from the shape file's DBF in the KML. In Google Earth, when you click on a parcel of land the data for that parcel will pop up. I'm not sure if this is of any use to you, mind. It's quite a large KML I'm afraid.
