    Question kml question

    i don't have exactly what i tried because the file(s) are on my computer at work, but here's the basics...
    i'm writing a kml file to plot placemarks out of a list of address (street, city, state) and i've tried:
    HTML Code:
    etc
    <placemark>
    etc
    <lookat>
    <address>*insert address here*</address>
    </lookat>
    etc
    </placemark>
    etc
    instead of:
    HTML Code:
    etc
    <placemark>
    etc
    <lookat>
    <longitude>blah</longitude>
    <latitude>blah</latitude>
    <range>blah</range>
    <tilt>blah</tilt>
    </lookat>
    etc
    </placemark>
    etc
    is there a way to have the <lookat> tag 'look at' an address instead of coords and plot the placemark via the address instead of the coords? i have over a thousand addresses to plot. don't worry about redundancy, i'm parsing the addresses.

    Ok, to sum it up: I need something to the effect of replacing <longitude>, <latitude>, <range>, and <tilt> with just <address>. I was thinking maybe locating the source file of how GE uses the Search field to locate a point when an address is entered (because the code probably converts the address to coords).
