Description

A single image can be georeferenced and shown with Google Earth by creating a KML file that contains a <LatLonBox?> element and a reference to corresponding image inside <Icon> element.

A complete kml file can look like this

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:gx="http://www.google.com/kml/ext/2.2" xmlns:kml="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
<GroundOverlay>
<name>Kekkila</name>
<color>ffffffff</color>
<Icon>
<href>shaded.png</href>
<gx:altitudeMode>clampToSeaFloor</gx:altitudeMode>
<viewBoundScale>1</viewBoundScale>
</Icon>
<LatLonBox>
<north>62.7610090549946</north>
<south>62.7465641176054</south>
<east>25.3950201433022</east>
<west>25.3653842055978</west>
</LatLonBox>
</GroundOverlay>
</kml>
