Basic KML Format

KML is a file format used for rendering geographical data. It uses a tag-based structure with nested elements and attributes. KML is based on the XML standard, and all tags of a KML file are case-sensitive.

Currently, the SfMaps control supports the following KML elements:

  • Place mark
  • Point
  • LinearRing
  • Polygon
  • MultiGeometry
  • Region
  • Style
  • StyleMap
  • BalloonStyle
  • LineStyle
