This process may be cancelled by the user at any time, clicking on the 'Cancel' button


4. Once it has finished, it will give you a message that the process has been completed. If you selected the option 'Open with Google Earth', the Google Earth application will open and the .kmz file will be shown.

Considerations when viewing the layers in Google Earth

In Google Earth, the exported file from GeoAgro GIS  can be viewed under the folder  "Temporary places".

Also, each of the layers can be viewed as a folder, as shown in the following figure.
