KML (Keyhole Markup Language) is an XML data format developed for use with Google Earth. KML specifies geographic features such as place marks, polygons, and images. Each feature is associated with a longitude and latitude in the KML markup. The information in a KML file is typically used to overlay objects on satellite imagery. Web services from Google Maps, MapQuest, and Microsoft’s Virtual Earth all support the KML format. For more information, see Wikipedia or the Open Geospatial Consortium's KML standard.
GeoRSS is a simple XML syntax used to add geographic references (latitude and longitude) to RSS and Atom content syndication data formats. A number of Web APIs support the GeoRSS data format, including MapQuest and Microsofts’s Virtual Earth. For additonal reading, check out Wikipedia or GeoRSS.org.
