Sample KML structure for the shooting ranges data

And here is a sample of what the intended shooting ranges KML feed will look like.

A couple notes:

  • the Placemark node will repeat for every shooting range
  • I’ll have to find a way to process the address information and generate latitude/longitude points—there are bound to be problems when the GeoCoder will have trouble parsing an address, though I’ve gone through this before on a prior Web development project
