This website provides a collection of Keyhole Markup Language (KML) and Google-Earth related resources and demonstrations of what is possible.

Below are several KML examples that dynamically update via NetworkLinks followed by other KML collections.

Dynamic Examples

  • You Are Here demo - uses NetworkLink to update with changes to the view.
    When you stop moving a Placemark will be dynamically placed at the center of the view using the position provided by Google Earth.
    Use this NetworkLink to dump all client properties available to Google Earth such as the LookAt tilt angle and horizonal field of view (fovHoriz).

  • Circle Generator - maintains a circle in the center of the view to give a sense of scale along similar lines as You Are Here Demo above. The exact size of the circle is configurable by right clicking on the Link and selecting Edit, and override the radius of the circle appending the parameter &radius=value to end of the URL where value has a numeric value and an optional units field (Default=meters) such as one the following: 20km, 2.7km, 4mi, 2miles, 300meter, 750feet. [More options]

  • Live Feed Simulator - uses NetworkLinks to simulate a real-time feed.
    Shows aircraft position with notational flight path flying in a fixed elliptical orbit around the Golden Gate Bridge.
    Updates view every 5 seconds.

  • Generate lots of placemarks - You select number of placemarks and styles to generate. (Useful for developers)
