The Google Maps plugin allows users to import KML (Keyhole Markup Language) and KMZ (Keyhole Markup Zipped) files in order to display data on the map. Multiple KML/KMZ files can be uploaded and seen simultaneously.
KML and KMZ files allow users to display custom layers within Google Maps, opening up a wide array of possibilities. These map layers can include anything from referenced points of interest, geographic boundaries, driving directions, 3D models, and more that can be used to enhance the functionality of the overall Google Maps experience. Google Maps can display KML/KMZ files, which are a type of geographic data format. These files can contain any kind of shapes, images, markers, text, and even 3D objects for displaying on the map.
