Google Earth's search engine now returns KML (Keyhole Markup Language) files which developers have created to add data to the application's maps, the company said.

"Users can now search through all of the world's KML files, making the millions of Google Earth layers on the web instantly accessible for geobrowsing and exploration," wrote Chikai Ohazama, a Google Earth product manager in an official company blog. Google expects to extend this capability to its mapping website Google Maps, Ohazama wrote.
