    New map that reads KML files and plots coordinates

    Brian Munz

      I've been surprised recently to hear that so many people still use my old KML reading map extension, which no longer works in IE10 and is...well, really old.  Rather than fixing that extension for IE10, I rolled the KML reading functionality into my other map extension that plots coordinates.

       

      So, if you used the KML extension before, simply use the last property in the property panel to specify the kml (actually, XML) file.  If you used the other extension that I had on market as DRAFT, simply add the coordinate dimension by pressing the in the dimensions section of the property panel.

       

      Please keep in mind KML files tend to be large, so this extension is meant for small amounts of data, or better yet, custom regions that you've drawn yourself.

       

      Regardless, this should also all work in IE10 now too.  I've posted it up on github here by clicking the "Download Zip" button:

      Feel free to contribute useful KML files to the repository using github.

      Thanks.
