[postgis-devel] KML from PostGIS patch

I have not tried asKML, but as far as I can tell from the code it is only returning the geometry.  
That means that you are free to concatenate this result with a "<Placemark>" tag, or even a custom schema based on the placemark, which references either an internal or external style definition using the <styleUrl> tag.
You'll also need to specify the rest of the KML document as part of your output.

Subject: Re: [postgis-devel] KML from PostGIS patch

KML merges presentation with position, something of a gis no-no I
guess, but there you go.  Does anyone have any thoughts on a
reasonable way to use asKML, or a similar tool, which would include
style information?

I have a few thoughts on the subject, but most of them seem pretty
weak.  Ideally we could do an asKML query and get back a KML file that
met our personal presentation needs.  Perhaps by specifying a template
or style sheet to apply.
