Launch HyperCities

Archive for February, 2010

When preparing a KML file produced by Google Earth, Google Maps, or by hand, it’s important to ensure that it’s compatible with HyperCities before uploading it. HyperCities supports most, but not all, of the standard KML tags. The following is a diagram of all the tags that HyperCities supports:

This diagram does not include elements that describe placemarks and folders, like “title”, but these should be interpreted correctly.

Please also note that the link, location, scale, and orientation tags onlywork if they are associated with a model, not a 2D object.
