KML Graphics
Visualizing Geography

The Keyhole Markup Language (KML) is an extension of XML used to enhance Internet-based maps, such as Google Maps, and three dimensional Earth browsers, such as Google Earth, with visual geographic information. Enhancements may include annotations, overlays, images, icons, 3D models and other graphics, which can be tremendously valuable to fields such as geography, archaeology, urban planning and architecture, history, travel, cultural studies, etc.

Here we present three slide show demonstrations of our experise with KML:

  1. Architectural Planning Presentation
    Developed for an architectural firm to illustrate how they can use KML and Google Earth for presentations to their clients.
  2. Historical 1930 Plat Maps
    Developed to help genealogists and historians identify 1930 property lines and ownership using Google Earth.
  3. Cemetery Locations (See it on Google Maps.)
    Developed to help genealogists and others find cemeteries in Dallas County, Missouri. The KML was generated by processing a CVS file containing cemetery names, latitudes and longitudes with a UNIX shell script.
