I understand the many values of a network link KML, however the largest draw back is that you must be online to use it. I plan to be working offline in fairly austere environments and would like to download the contents of a networked KML for use offline with an offline mapping service. Does anyone know how to download the contents of a networked KML to a local file? Size isn't a concern.
My experience with network link file have been with the old Google Earth Community, where I wanted to make a complex file available for Google Earth without placing a lot of out-of-context placemarks in the Google Earth Community Layer in Google Earth. HERE is an example, which contains a KMZ file attached. The file is a folder which contains a network link file and a folder (hopeful unnoticed by the user) which contained a few modified placemarks from the file itself that would go in the GEC Layer and which contained links for downloading the complete file.
Note that when the KMZ is downloaded, the complete KMZ file (the target file of the netlink file) is included in the folder, and can be saved for use anytime. As you seem to understand, GE is barely functional offline, but if your application is designed for use offline, the network link file should be no problem once its target file has been saved.

KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
