Embedding Google Earth in your .NET application

It used to be that the best integration that you could get with google earth was either:
  • make a static KML file: this gave you the opportunity to search your data from the kml)
  • make a dynamic KML. This made it possible to get the latest information always.
Well now there's a better way. Embed the google earth plugin. Its been around for sometime but I just saw it now.

Anyways. There is an amazing control that allows you to embed this (browser) plugin into your winform application writter by Fraser .

All about the winform component on google code .

Although for anything advanced I would still go for this control :)

Enjoy!
