After posting about the global place directory Tageo three weeks ago, I emailed them and suggested they add a link to an automatically generated KML placemark for each location in their database. They said they were looking into it. Today, I happened by there and noticed that now you get exactly that.
Suddenly, Tageo rocks as an ancillary to Google Earth: 2,667,417 coordinate pairs to go look up, a very forgiving search function (if it doesn’t get a direct hit, it makes clever suggestions) and a linked list of nearby places. I’m adding it to Ogle Earth’s list of essential tools.
