Upcoming: KML Handbook

KML HandbookOne of Google’s documentation engineers, Josie Wernecke, has written a book which will be released this fall. It’s called “The KML Handbook: Geographic Visualization for the Web“. Notice the “for the Web” part – the book is not just focused on its applications for Google Earth – or even the new web-based Earth API plugin. It will be a guide to developers using KML for any applications of KML. The book will be published by Adison Wesley, and should be available in November. Here is O’Reilley’s Rough Cut on the book.
Josie has been a writer of technical publications for graphics applications for a long time. I remember years ago when she wrote the book “The Inventor Mentor” which was a guide to using application tools for OpenGL while she was at Silicon Graphics.
