Keyhole Markup Language (KML) and the Mapping Application Programming Interface (API)
Advanced Mashups – KML and the Mapping API by Cary Chadwick of the University of Connecticut Center for Land Use Education and Research (April 14, 2010). This webinar covered the basics of Keyhole Markup Language (KML) and advanced mashup applications using a mapping Application Programming Interface (API). Mapping APIs discussed include the Google Maps API and the Google Earth API. Through both discussion and demonstration, this webinar showcased methods for creating and editing KML, converting GIS data to KML and techniques for building simple Google mapping applications for the web using a mapping API. Additional information on these and other techniques for putting maps and geographic information on the web is available from UCONN’s Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) Maps on the Web website: http://clear.uconn.edu/training/maps. This webinar was co-hosted by the EBM Tools Network, the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, and the University of Connecticut Center for Land Use Education and Research.
