Creating and Sharing KML

You can create KML files with the Google Earth user interface, or you can use an XML or simple text editor to enter raw KML from scratch. KML files and their related images can be packaged up into KMZ archives so that all related image and model files are contained in one KMZ container (described in detail in Chapter 2). To share your KML and KMZ files, you can e-mail them as attachments, host them locally for sharing on a private home or corporate network, or host them publicly on a web server. Once you’ve properly configured your server and shared the web address of your KML files, anyone who’s installed Google Earth (or other compatible application) can view the KML files you create.
