Check usage and version matrix.

The KML Export extension allows to generate KML files for Google Earth from content in article pages. Users add templates to article pages with geographic coordinates (placemarks) of the subject on the article; the extension provides a special page that scans the articles that contains the placemarks and generates a single KML file, with links leading back to the wiki.


The last stable version of KML Export is 1.3.0, released October 19th, 2008. This extension is currently not being maintained.

As of this version, KML Export has the following features:

  • Hierarchically arrange placemarks in folders through wiki categories
  • Generates KML 2.1 markup
  • Caches parsed placemarks from articles

For a list of all KML 2.1 tags supported by KML Export, see the complete list of features.
