KML Techniques Every Developer Should Know

Location: Gold Level: Novice
Average rating: ***..
(3.83, 6 ratings)

This workshop will be a heads-first dive into advanced KML techniques and best practices for developing complex, engaging and data-dense maps for Google Earth. Drawing from examples and experience developing Google Earth’s own layers content, we will discuss how to efficiently visualize very large vector and raster datasets, push the limits of KML Touring, take advantage of javascript and CSS support in Google Earth 5.0, dynamically generate KML, and cover a range of tips and tricks that will help you create compelling user experiences in a performance conscious way.

This was a good session, but would have been much better had there been some session materials made available for attendees to work with in concert with the presentation.
