Alternatively, you can construct the URL yourself in Google Maps by prefixing your KML file's URL with http://maps.google.com/maps?q=. For example, to open the same KML file from above, you can use the following URL:http://maps.google.com/maps?q=http://mywebsite.com/myfile.kmlThis procedure also works for Google Earth, the 3D earth-browsing plug-in you can add to your Web browser.
