Welcome to pyKML

pyKML is a Python package for creating, parsing, manipulating, and validating KML, a language for encoding and annotating geographic data.

pyKML is based on the lxml.objectify API which provides a Pythonic API for working with XML documents. pyKML adds additional functionality specific to the KML language.

KML comes in several flavors. pyKML can be used with KML documents that follow the base OGC KML specification, the Google Extensions Namespace, or a user-supplied extension to the base KML specification (defined by an XML Schema document).

pyKML is open source. Packaged releases can be found on the Python Package Index (PyPI). Developers can download the pyKML source code and noodle with it. Bug reports, enhancement requests and examples of using pyKML are appreciated.
