It's a very beautiful tourist place. People come on boats from Kemari harbor and there's also 1 road linking this island to Karachi.

Shaheen:

When submitting your maps, sometimes the URL is in this format:

http://maps.google.com/maps?q=24.8019358561,+66.9682727323&spn=0.037749,0.082191&t=k&iwloc=A&hl=en

which is a valid URL for Google Maps, but when it gets converted into KML to link into Google Earth, it winds up pointing to somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean.

In the future, it would be very helpful if you could change the q= in the URL to a ll= and also remove the + sign from the longitude coordinate, so that your URL will look like this:

http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=24.8019358561,66.9682727323&spn=0.037749,0.082191&t=k&iwloc=A&hl=en

This will enable the script on our end to properly configure the KML file.

Thanks a lot! And keep the interesting posts coming!
