KMLtoSHAPE: Preserving Attribute Values: Converting KML to Shapefile

The developed function is designed to facilitate the seamless conversion of KML (Keyhole Markup Language) files to Shapefiles while preserving attribute values. It provides a straightforward interface for users to effortlessly import KML data, extract relevant attributes, and export them into the widely compatible Shapefile format. The package ensures accurate representation of spatial data while maintaining the integrity of associated attribute information. For details see, Flores, G. (2021). <doi:10.1007/978-3-030-63665-4_15>. Whether for spatial analysis, visualization, or data interoperability, it simplifies the conversion process and empowers users to seamlessly work with geospatial datasets.
