I'm in a little pinch and was hoping someone here had 20 minutes or so to help.

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 matt@braynard.com.

Thanks for your help.

Matt,

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.

Ok,

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... :)

Hi Matt,

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.
