Google has just announced that the Google Maps API now supports GeoRSS and KML. This is going to make the creation of Google Maps applications so much easier, given that Google Earth exports KML, and GeoRSS is becoming more widely used.

They seem to have made some efficiency tweaks too, as a few examples that I’ve tried out at work involving KML and complex polygons seem to work a bit more smoothly.

Get the full info at the Google Maps API Blog or jump straight to some examples.
