I have the same question as KeithM in this old Google Groups thread. (There is also a Google Earth Outreach series of YouTube videos which addresses the topic, but it’s a dizzying click, cut & paste fest, using html editors etc., which may work for others but doesn’t for me.) Here is a simple example of what I would like to do. I have three placemarks, of London, Paris and Berlin, and want to add some text and a small image (london.jpg etc.) to each of them, then package the whole in a self-contained kmz file. Meaning, the images should be extracted from the kmz file, not from the internet or anyone’s hard drive. I understand the kmz file needs to contain the usual doc.kml file, plus a folder for the images. My question is: how do I create (or edit) a kml file which can perform this task? I know about the placemark options named Add web image and Add local image, but obviously there is no Package with kmz option. Example code would be great.
I made a small test project. I added the code to the description section of the three placemarks, generated a kml file, zipped Bourtange.kml with the images folder named “files”, and renamed it Bourtange.kmz. The images don’t show up when opening the kmz file in GE. Either I made a mistake or GE has trouble with relative paths, as some people say.
