In this workshop you will be preparing to create a dynamic overlay for GoogleEarth.

The key learning points are

  • GoogleEarth is extended with user defined overlays, either static or dynamic
  • the XML vocabulary is called kml
  • a valid kml file needs very few elements to create a minimal file
  • the file must have a Mime type of application/
  • there are geocoding services which will translate a place name to its latitude and longitude
