One very useful function of ArcGIS is the creation of hyperlinks. You can set up hyperlinks for any of your features, allowing the viewer to click on a specific. Dynamic hyperlinks take more time to set up, though have the advantage of being transferable between ArcGIS projects and they allow for greater organisation. to an ArcMap Feature (polygon, line or point).

As you should know google earth pro is now free. My goal is to have a kml of the boundaries of these quads, each with a popup containing a hyperlink that will open the correct pdf. Right-click the hyperlink field heading and choose calculate field.
The string in the hyperlink field needs to be formatted similar to: The hyperlink field should look like this now. This link can be an absolute path as well, or a url, just replace the path within the single quotes with an absolute path pro tip — this can be a network location or valid url. Now use the layer to kml tool in arcmap to export the layer with hyperlinks to a kmz. The tool is called layer to kml, but it only exports kmz, go figure.
This can go in a temporary location, hyoerlink with the relative link in the hyperlink the output kmz must be opened and saved as kml in the same location as the pdf folder.
Even if the output kmz was saved to the same directory as the pdf folder at this point, the hyperlinks would not work. They are relative as will be looking inside the compressed.
Now open the kmz in google earth. If you click one of the features to open the pop up window, note that the hyperlink does not work. The second preference is what will allow us to open the corresponding quad pdfs.

When you check the second box a warning will appear, press enable. Now navigate to the directory containing the pdf folder with the quad pdfs inside and change the file type to.
Keep in mind that relative links that contain spaces can be problematic and that the relative link hypeerlink will not work with the raw kmz output from arcmap, at least not for this workflow. I needed to do this because my client is not GIS savvy and prefers to see spatial data in google earth.
I have a workflow that includes many grouped layers in a master mxd. These group layers are translated to. With the proper formatting in the attribute tables of the GIS data, the hyperlinks carry over into the final product and allow my client to see the boundaries of certain maps and data and open the corresponding maps very quickly. Thanks for your help. Many clients are asking for more spatial data in GE right now.
