9  OSMGoogleEarth has not been updated to use the 0.5 API. It is recommended
10  that you use the Export package of the newer Ruby OSM Library which also
11  does KML export and is faster and more flexible. See

18Transform OpenStreetMap .osm file into KML file for Google Earth.
19
20You need a file called data.osm. When you call make a file map.kmz will
21be generated. This file contains a Google Earth KML file and some icons.
22
23Load it into Google Earth with the menu "Add" -> "Network Link...". It
24will appear in the Places list. Double click it there to fly to the
25place.
26
27Currently only some streets, parks, and parking lots are shown, but it
28is easy to improve on this.
29
30The isle_of_wight.kmz file is provided as an example.
31
32On Linux and other Unix-Like systems you can use the shellscript with the
33config file to update multiple locations in one go. Use sparingly.
