Google EarthOne of the cool features of Woopra that was never documented is the KML server. Your Woopra on the desktop can serve KML files over http.

We are using the port 9565 (WKML) to serve KML over http. All you have to do is to use the following url:


http://<localhost>:9565/<mywebsite.com>

Let’s go over the setup step by step:

  1. Download and install Google Earth
  2. Launch the Woopra Application, login to your account and connect to your desired Website
  3. Launch Google Earth
  4. Once connected to your desired website, Add a Network Link on Google Earth:

  5. Enter a name for your Place and the KML Link. Usually, the host is always localhost since the Woopra Desktop is on the same machine, but you can request the KMLs from a different machine on your network. Replace ekhoury.com with your connected website:

  6. Now, go the Refresh tab, and change the Time-Based Refresh value. One of the downsides of this feature is that it pulls information periodically from the Woopra App instead of getting pushed. In this configuration, I’m pulling updates every 5 seconds:

    Refresh Settings

  7. Press Okay and we’re done! You should see the following Item under Places:

Here’s what you should see on Google Earth:
