ready Keyhole Markup Language

Abbreviation: KML


General Information
KML is an XML language focused on geographic visualization, including annotation of maps and images. Geographic visualization includes not only the presentation of graphical data on the globe, but also the control of the user's navigation in the sense of where to go and where to look. KML is complementary to most of the key existing OGC standards including GML (Geography Markup Language), WFS (Web Feature Service) and WMS (Web Map Service).

Related Databases (5)
EarthChem
EarthChem develops and maintains databases, software, and services that support the preservation, discovery, access and analysis of geochemical data, and facilitate their integration with the broad array of other available earth science parameters. The EarthChem Portal stores geochemical data, provides a variety of search, visualization, and output formatting options, and is interoperable with the LEPR database and the MELTS software. EarthChem Library is a data repository that archives, publishes and makes accessible data and other digital content from geoscience research.

Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples
The Index to Marine and Lacustrine Geological Samples (IMLGS) describes and provides access to ocean floor and lakebed rock and sediment samples curated by participating institutional and government repositories in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. Each curatorial facility prepares data on their own collection for the IMLGS. Data include basic collection and storage information. Lithology, texture, age, principal investigator, province, weathering, metamorphism, glass remarks, and descriptive data are included for some samples, at the discretion of the curator. The Index provides links to view and download related data and images in the long-term archive, at participating institutions.

Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost - Database
The Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost (GTN-P) database stores information regarding essential climate variables (ECV) as part of the Global Terrestrial Network on Permafrost (GTN-P) programme. The database aims to provide information on the relationships between ground temperature, gas fluxes and the Earth’s climate system. GTN-P contains time series for borehole temperatures and grids of active layer thickness (TSP, CALM) plus air and surface temperature and moisture (DUE Permafrost, MODIS) measured in the terrestrial Panarctic, Antarctic and Mountainous realms.

Global Monitoring Laboratory Data Finder and Viewer
The Global Monitoring Laboratory (GML) performs reference measurements and research focused on the role of the atmosphere on global climate forcing, the ozone layer and background air quality. Its purpose is to acquire, evaluate, and make available accurate, long-term records of atmospheric gases, aerosol particles, clouds, and surface radiation in a manner that allows the causes and consequences of change to be understood. GML provides access to its data repository via searching with the Data Finder and map-based viewing with the Data Viewer. GML supports research and innovation in a number of areas, including atmospheric measurement development, calibration, and testing; measurement intercomparison; top-down emission quantification; satellite and model data evaluation; and renewable (solar and wind) energy production forecasting.

German Marine Research Alliance Marine Data Portal
The German Marine Research Alliance (DAM) aims to strengthen the sustainable use of the coasts, seas and oceans through research, data management and digitalisation, infrastructure and transfer. The DAM Marine Data Portal provides an entry point for the data associated with this project.
