Create KML/KMZ files and view them in Google Earth. Supports 3D models, contours, overlays, and more

classdef kml < handle
%KML(name) Create a KML toolbox object, that allows you to plot from MATLAB to Google Earth
%  This class-based toolbox allows you to create many different plots in Google Earth, by automatically creating the required xml-based kml files without user interaction.
%  
%  With it, you can create: 
%  - line plots, scatter plots 
%  - 2D and 3D contours 
%  - 2D and 3D polygons 
%  - quiver plots 
%  - write text in a given point 
%  - place 3D models 
%  - overlay images 
%  - transfer more complex figures as images 
%  - folders, subfolders,... to aggregate similar plots 
%  
%  For some usage examples, check the code at .\test\RunTests.m
%
%  If you enjoy it, just drop me an email at kml@rafael.aero saying for what you're using it :).
