Google Earth boundary files

What is this kmz file for?

This kmz file will allow you to view the boundary of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area when you are browsing in Google Earth or another similar Earth browser.

A kmz file stands for kml-zipped. It is the default format for kml because it is a compressed version of the file used to display geographic data in an Earth browser such as Google Earth, Google Maps, and Google Maps for mobile.

 

How to use a kmz/kml file in Google Earth

  • Download (save) the kmz file below, unzip the file, and then load the kml file into Google Earth (Click File > Open). In Google Earth, it will appear in the “Temporary Places” folder.
