KML svg translation

Registered by miles on 2008-02-26

Develop a translation (likely XSLT) between KML and SVG so KML files or icons can easily be created, edited, or viewed in Inkscape and for use in Google Earth or Maps. This becomes another piece in utilizing Inkscape's SVG editing capabilities in the geographical community ("geo" Inkscape). Several of us have discussed this as a potential Google Summer of Code project. I would be happy to serve as a mentor.

Hi, I´ve developed an initial converter from SVG to KML in Java. It currently converts polygons, given the output "bounds" (north, east, south, west). Infos and hg repository is at https://bitbucket.org/tbrugz/kmlutils/. Feel free to improve on it
