Create a Buffer for a KML in Google Earth

Create a user-defined buffer around point, line, or polygon KMLs has never been easier!

1) Make sure that your Google Earth data is saved as a KML, not KMZ

2) Open this website: http://www.geo-news.net/index_buffer.php

          

3) Select your buffer type (line, point, or polygon)

4) Select the KML you would like to buffer and choose a buffer distance (in meters). Click the globe with the up arrow to upload your KML file.

                                    

5) A new KML will be created and available via a link at the top of the screen.

            

6) Click the link, save the KML to a location of your choosing and open in Google Earth!
