2.1 Where do I get the KML Importer? top
It is already part of the GermaniumWeb plugin. After you have installed GermaniumWeb, you simply need to load the KML file in GermaniumWeb.
2.2 I am having trouble loading my KML file in GermaniumWeb. What should I do? top
Check out the troubleshooting section in the KML user guide.
2.3 Can I load .kmz files? top
No. While Google Earth lets you save as both .kml and .kmz file formats, the Germanium KML Building Importer does not support .kmz files for now. You can unzip the .kmz file and it should contain a .kml that you can load in GermaniumWeb. Alternaltively, you can open the .kmz file in Google Earth and save it as a .kml file instead.
2.4 Can I export the building models from Google Earth into a KML file and load it in GermaniumWeb? top

No. GermaniumWeb only imports Image Overlay data in KML files to generate floorplan models. Apart from the placemark used to specify the building origin, the other features of the KML data format are not supported.
