Is there a hard way that is more proper, or is reimplementing the input
handler proper? Also addGeoDataString doesn't have much for documentation.
Does it take a kml? I am getting a seg fault with a string (generated
from the selection):
Which loads into google earth without error. Is there anywhere else to
look, or should I just go straight to the code?
