The City of Nanaimo is pleased to provide some of its geographic information for use in Google Earth™ on an experimental basis.
Google Earth™ is a fully featured spatial discovery tool, available free for download at http://earth.google.com/ Using an XML format called KML (Keyhole Markup Language) users are able to create their own features for display in Google Earth™.
Recent G.I.S. software developments have allowed us to begin offering our data in Google Earth™. This includes Safe Software's recently introduced support for the KML format in FME, and a custom KML generation routine running on the recently released MapGuide Open Source.
