KML Loader

After spending so much time invested in loading and editing kml we've created a section dedicated to our kml libraries. Over the coming weeks I'll be expanding this into a reference for the library. Feel free to contact us with comments or queries.


Simple KML Loader

You can use this code to simply load and display a kml file on your map.

  1. var loader:SimpleKmlLoader = new SimpleKmlLoader( google_map_instance, true );
  2. loader.load( _file );


See this post for information on how to add interactions to your kml objects.

Kml Loader Basics

See this post on the basic implementation of the loader. This requires more work than the SimpleKmlLoader but is the base class if you don't need the automatic map addition.
