Cannot export view to Google Earth KMZ

Hi everyone, I got an error when exporting data to Google Earth KMZ in SNAP when working with Sentinel 1 data. I open the image, right click on it and choose Export View as Google Earth KMZ. The error message as following picture. Please help me! Thanks.

Maybe the filesize exceeds what is technically feasible. Try if it works if you zoom in to a small area. If so, the image might be too large for a kmz at full extent.


Thank you very much Abraun. It is exactly as you said.

hi, I also have the case that “it can not be exported”… I don’t know what happened.

how large (colums and rows) is the exported raster band and how much RAM does your computer have?

My computer have 8 RAM.

You have an Out Of Memory error and your computer only has 8 GB of RAM. Maybe you can try to use the Subset operator to make the image smaller before exporting it.


as an alternative, you can resample the data to a coarser spatial resolution.

Also, why is your data stored as png? This might not be the most effective format.

I don’t know why it’s png, I’m just following the instructor’s instructions.

I made it smaller, maybe not enough. I am learning how to create a shapefile in ArcGIS to cut but have not found the tutorial that I want.

then would it make sense to ask the instructor? :wink:
We can only help when we understand what you want to do and why.

I tried to cut the image as small as possible. :blush:
I tried cutting before, but I found out I made a error. :sweat_smile:

Dear ABraun,

I finished the analysis through stamps. The number of the PSs was about 316000 as stamps said. But after exporting to google earth, I recognized that the number is much less so I re-export to arcgis to calculate them and the number of points was about 6000.I do not know what is the point that I missed. Help!

the kmz export defines the fraction of points which is used. If you type 10, you only get 10%
