I hate the way Google keeps making me lose sleep :)
By now most of you know that Google has released version 4 of Google Earth. This version comes with a new revision of the KML format, with some really cool goodies. If you haven’t already, make sure you download the latest version before trying out any of the live demos in this post.
I’ve just finished hacking together a PHP script that distributes WMS services as nested Region-based KML layers, what Google is calling SuperOverlays.
Looking for some good WMS sites to try this out with, I picking up on Matt Perry’s post about his favourite WMS servers a few months ago and used some of these for my examples. The following images show what each of the WMS reflectors gives for an area off the east coast of Florida near Jacksonville.

Well, that’s it… I’m off to work. Let me know what you think, and please pass along links to any services you put in place!
