Klm file fot Google Earth


#1

Hello flightaware,
Taking pictures during my flights (see enclosed, picture from the Baikal lake and the Google earth view), I am frequently looking to the detailed path of my plane on Google earth.

For this I build a *.klm file in the following way:
Adding a head and end of file, I use the coordinates issued from the tracklog of flightaware:


I copy paste the table in Excel
I exchange the latitude and longitude columns
I add a column altitude (in m, with = altitude if < 1000 / = altitude *1000 if > 1000 m).
I copy paste the 3 columns, (longitude, latitude, altitude) with a “,” as separator into a klm file (see below) between the head and the end of file.
Is it possible to have in flight aware a klm file upload option? (with the complete route of the plane flight)

Just a difficulty: for my flights from/to Japan, there is some intermediate “estimated”; positions. The intermediate estimated coordinates are no longer given in the tracklog page (this was given previously, but has been unfortunately suppressed…)
It would be nice to have then back in the flight log.

The klm file structure for Google earth:
