Obligation: CONDITIONAL, Lifecycle: CURRENT

If an Affiliate has the requirement to share (export/import) with participants, entities and organizations outside of the Mission Network, then it is to support exchange via KML. When exporting KML files that reference external resources, KML Zipped (KMZ) must be used and all relevant referenced external resources must be included in the KMZ structure as relative references. The references to these files can be found in the href attribute of several KML elements. To enable cross domain exchange and long-term preservation relative references must be used for those resources that are included in the KMZ structure. As many Earth Viewers only work with legacy PKZIP 2.x format for KMZ, .zip folders shall be created in accordance withhttps //www.pkware.com/documents/APPNOTE/APPNOTE-2.0.txt
