    I have been playing around with a kml file and figured out that it works in an XML format, just a little different from what FS9 / FSX uses.

    a feature of a tool i'm trying to develop will be importing of Google Earth Kml files, what is supposed to happen is that a plugin would read the kml file extract the data i'm after (lat & longitude) and then translate this to FSX XML
    which is then send to the kml file -

    now what my plugin should do is read the kml file then convert non-decimal lat/lon values to decimal by multiplying the values by 60 then placing them into the xml file which is being used on the project.

    this is will be a feature when placing an object.
