Create tag writers that write the information from GeoDataRegion and GeoDataScreenOverlay according to the kml specs.
- In src/lib/geodata/writers/kml, create classes KmlRegionTagWriter, KmlLodTagWriter and KmlLatLonAltBoxWriter. The existing KmlLatLonBoxWriter will be a good base for KmlLatLonAltBoxWriter. Have them write the information of GeoDataRegion.
- In src/lib/geodata/writers/kml, create a class KmlScreenOverlayWriter and write the information of GeoDataScreenOverlay. Have a look at the existing KmlGroundOverlayWriter and use the same approach (inherit KmlOverlayTagWriter).
- Use tools/kml2kml/kml2kml (needs to be compiled) to test your writers. examples/kml/NewYorkRegion.kml contains a Region, http://nsidc.org/data/virtual_globes/misc/NSIDC_screen_overlays.kml has ScreenOverlays.
