Breaking up with GPX

KML is now an international standard!”

Is KML really the one for me? Who knows? I’ll let all those fancy organizations and their “stakeholders” sort it out. Google has released KML to the wild. I’ve got a new crush.

There’s no room in my life for two formats, I’m going to have to have a talk with GPX. It’s just not working out for me anymore and I have to move on. I’ll probably wimp out and do this by email.

There’s almost no reason for a DMO, or any organization related to a location, of any size or means not to have robust mapping capabilities. Or any location-based organization. It’s so easy!

Open-sourcing almost guarantees that there will be choices OTG (Other than Google) in mapping services and products. Any previous reluctance in adopting KML for mission-critical applications should now be gone – time to start mapping!

Here’s a map I recently made of debatable value:
