+<em>r.out.kml</em> creates KML and image files suitable for Google Earth
+from a GRASS raster map. Alternatively the user may create a compressed
+KMZ file by using the <b>-z</b> flag.
+KML expects data to be in Latitude-Longitude using the WGS84 datum and
+EGM96 vertical datum. This script will work for non-geographic map
+projections, but only if the projection's local deviation from true-north
+(the convergence angle) is small enough to ensure correct output. You can
+use the <em>r.proj</em> module from a Latitude-Longitude location to
+reproject maps if needed.
+At this time vertical datum is not checked by this module as support for
+it is relatively new in <em>r.support</em> and <em>r.info</em>.
+KMZ output requires the "zip" program to be installed.
+Transparency for NULL cells in PNG images is automatically enabled if the
+version of GRASS used supports it. <!-- currently >= 6.5svn
+but may backport for 6.4.1 -->
