How to KML?
Google Earth is the most well-known 3D Earth engines that can load these data formats.
How to X3D?
You will need a stand-alone X3D engine or a web browser plug-in to view X3D and VRML files! For a short version, see this link; for an exhaustive list, see here. Look for news on our recommendations; currently Fraunhofer's Instant Reality is our stand-alone engine of choice.
