  • Members of an industry group called the Open Geospatial Consortium have approved Google’s KML technology as an open standard for describing some geographic data.

    KML is used to manage the display of geospatial information in Google Earth, the company’s software for flying over the surface of a virtual globe. With its 3D coordinate-based system, people can create models of city buildings, draw a line showing where they hiked, or overlay their own custom place names on a generic map.
