Creating a Feature Report
A feature report is a document that contains information about the attributes and geometry of selected features in a layer. You can use the Feature Report tool in XTools Pro to create a feature report in various formats, such as PDF, HTML, RTF, etc. You can also customize the layout, style, and content of the report using templates and expressions.
To create a feature report, follow these steps:

Click OK to generate the report.
The report will be created and opened in the default application for the chosen format. You can view, print, or share the report as needed.
Exporting Data to KML
KML is a file format used to display geographic data in an Earth browser, such as Google Earth. You can use the Export to KML tool in XTools Pro to export vector and raster data from ArcGIS to KML format, preserving the original symbology and attributes. You can also export temporal and 3D data to KML, which can be animated and viewed in 3D mode in Google Earth.
To export data to KML, follow these steps:
Add the data you want to export to KML to ArcMap.
Open the XTools Pro toolbar and click on the Export to KML button.
In the Export to KML dialog box, choose the output location and name for the KML file.
Optionally, you can adjust the export settings, such as scale range, transparency, labels, pop-ups, etc.
If you have temporal or 3D data, you can enable the Time or Altitude options and specify the parameters for them.
Click OK to export the data to KML.
The KML file will be created and added to ArcMap. You can open it in Google Earth or any other application that supports KML format. a474f39169
