Announcing my latest little toy:

It's a viewer for the KML and KMZ files used by Google Earth. It uses the Google Maps API to show the locations listed in the file. I made it mostly for my Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou mapping project/obsession (as seen at, but it should be able to load most any Google Earth file. For example, here's Area 51:

Enjoy! If you want your own copy, it's available here:

Since is gone now, the script has moved:

There's also a couple of updates - the script now supports polylines, and there have been some bugfixes. The new version is available here:

In addition, there's now a specialized version of the script for the Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou mapping project:

after uploading a kmz file it says something about key not being registered for that site, and I can't see anything except a blank screen in firefox.

On the page, or on a page of your own?

Never mind, I noticed it myself too. I forgot to change the key from my test location. It's fixed now.

I just tried to write some kml with the java framework JAK.

Unfortunately the resulting file (appended with image upload) fails in kmlview.

Could you tell why?

Your tool is very useful for debugging, but sometimes I wish it could tell me whats wrong with the KML file.

Thanks for helping.
