Users can download KMZ format files from Map View. This file format can be loaded into mapping applications such as Google Earth.

By default, SuperWEB2 will include the table name in the file (this will appear in the layer list in Google Earth) and a legend for the map (this displays in the bottom left corner of the display in Google Earth).

There are also some parameters for the KMZ output that you can configure. To change these settings, you need to modify <tomcat_home>\webapps\webapi\WEB-INF\classes\configuration.properties.

You will need to restart Tomcat or the SuperWEB2 service to apply any changes you make to this configuration file.
