Well, there's the OGR tools (ogr2ogr in this case) which can write GML and KML files, and read from Postgres/PostGIS databases: http://www.gdal.org/ogr/

The OGR is actually a library, so you get an C/C++ (and also Python, I think) API. That should allow you to integrate it into a PHP wrapper.

Hi there,

I made a tour on Google to look around if there exist some KML export  
tool. I've seen the Set_AsKML command; I've seen this dicussion; and  
have found that someone wrote a script for postgis; and a phyton script.

But it seems that there is no easy-way-to-go export/wrapper script,  
enabling for example the execution of pgsql2kml...

Or can someone give be a hint how to develop a KML export for a PHP  
based Data Portal?

Thanks for any help,
