Marble KML support: Verify that <hotspot> and <scale> work as specified

completed by: Kyle Morris

mentors: Torsten Rahn

Marble has support for the KML IconStyle tag:


- Using Google Earth create a placemark and assign a custom icon to it.

- Then save the placemark into a kml file and load it into Marble

- Compare the result in Google Earth and Marble

- Then - step by step - change the <scale> and <hotspot> properties in Google Earth and compare in Marble.

Behavior that differs in both applications should get checked against the KML Reference specification. In case there is a bug it should get reported.

Create a fix for the bug.
