KML File for Victorian Marine Protected Areas, Piers and Jetties

Postby lloyd_borrett » Thu, 14 Mar 2019 10:27 am


Back in April 2013, Parks Victoria published a KML file containing the geographic mapping data for all of the Victorian Parks and Conservation Reserves. We've taken that file and removed everything except for the Marine Protected Areas (marine national parks and marine sanctuaries), Piers, and Jetties. With this information loaded into your dive boat GPS unit you'll know if you're in a protected area, or not.

Download/view the Victorian Marine Protected Areas Piers and Jetties April 2013 file (KML file | 609.43 KB | 03-Mar-2019) in the Keyhole Markup Language (KML) file format used to display geographic data in an Earth browser such as Google Earth and Google Maps. ... l-2013.kml

Some marine GPS units can import the information from a KML file. For others you can use use a file translate program (e.g. GPSBabel) to convert the KML file into an import file format (e.g. GPX) supported by your GPS unit.

We're hoping we can work out how to display this information under our dive maps in due course.

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett.
