    I was just curious if it would be at all possible to make an option put the address and telphone # in the comments section automatically? http://www.poi-factory.com/node/906 discusses what part of the kml files contains this information.  I know a lot of people who create custom points of interest files would love this option.  Thanks Aaron

     
    • This is something I can take a look at... I guess, my question is where does google map place the address and phone # in the kml file? I have been copying the address into the description tag all these times.

      Do you happen to have a kml file that I can look at?

        Typically the "address" portion just has the address and the "snippet" has the address + phone number, so you load 1 or the other.  The sniper portion doesn't always have the phone number however, most do.
