JAK - Java API for KML

In a previous blog post I showed how it was possible to take information recorded by a GPS device and mobile phone and plot the resulting track using Google Maps.

Recently, I found a link to a JAVA API that allows you to interact with the KML files produced by the process using a JAVA application.

The project aims to provide an

"automatically generated full reference implementation of the KML object model defined by OGC’s KML standard and Google’s GX extensions. It is an object orientated API that enables the convenient and easy use of KML in existing Java environments."
Over the next couple of weeks I am going to do some experimentation using this API and try and develop some simple applications to take GPS tracks from Nokia Sports Tracker and my GPS and create interesting KML files.

Stay tuned...
