For upcoming course on KML and geospatial technologies, I've created this word cloud with all the words from the KML 2.2 spec. Of the 34K words in the document, the larger words in visualization are used most often. A fun way to view the KML spec at a glance.

Just published a KML Reference Errata and Addendum listing a number of minor gaps in the KML Specification as well as discrepancies between the Google KML Reference documentation or the Google Earth implementation and the official OGC KML Specification.

I've reported these issues individually but now have aggregated them into a single document to act as an implementation guide to highlight issues not clearly spelled out in the KML standard.
