Load Vector Data from a KML File

This document describes the basics of working with KML files using the Map Control.

This subject has been broken down into the following sections.

Expanded Overview

Using the Map control, you can load and depict any set of geographic visualization data (placemarks, polygons, images, textual descriptions, etc.) stored in the KML (Keyhole Markup Language) format. KML files have a tag-based structure with nested elements (similar to the XML standard).

Note

For more information, see the following link: KML Documentation.

One of the common usage scenarios for the KML format is to display vector data above an image tiles map. For instance, the image below shows a shape loaded from a KML file.

Expanded Load KML File Data
