View Full Version : Online KMZ Viewer

as an Linux-user I can't use Google Earth, so I've hacked a small script that is able to show Placemarks from .kmz files via Google Maps Api.

The script runs here: http://maps.daemlich.net/
Because I'm unable to create some real kmz/kml files i would be happy to get some testing on this. So, anyone who who has some time and likes to play around a bit just paste an url to some .kmz file (like http://maps.daemlich.net/multi.kmz) into the URL-Box and hit "Go".
The script should add markers on the map and fill the select-box with all placemarks from your .kmz.

If a file does not work, make sure it contains a placemark and feel free to mail it to ne-geh@nicoerfurth.de

It would also be nice if you can provide me with some advanced .kmz files, maybe with overlays or whatever GoogleEarth supports. :)

This script is very beta, so it may break on some input.

Works for me.... impressive.

Seems like it's not always parsing the <name> and <description> fields into the text box.

Other than that, very cool. I like it.

Thanks for testing!

@ink_polaroid: do you have some sample file that triggers the parsing problem?
And, which browser do you use? This thing is largely JS-based and i could only test it with FireFox/Linux.
