Some interesting updates from the gmaps crew recently hit the google maps API weblog. Imagine this… view KML files with google maps…

To view a KML or KMZ file on Maps, just go to Google Maps, and instead of searching for a geographical address like 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, 94043, search for a complete Web address (including the “http://” part) of your KMZ file, like http://kml.lover.googlepages.com/cropcircles.kmz. Also suggested… do you need your own web space to upload some files? Try Google Page Creator. http://pages.google.com/ View entire photo sets as self-contained KMZ files, as exported by Picasa. See more on how to do this via http://hikesandbikes.blogspot.com/2006/10/life-of-geolocated-blog-post.html Finally, path and polygon drawing tools are now in the free November 1 beta of Google Earth. More on the latest beta at http://earth.google.com/earth4-beta6.html - thanks to the gmaps API blog for these updates!
