Using a KML file I can show Google Earth in website. Now, can anyone give me idea to implement following specification?
 
I need following buttons above the Google Earth plugin
 
a. User must be able to switch between map and earth.
b. User should be able to save and download the map or earth as image
 
So we have to use same KML file (that is used for google earth) to show google map. After that google earth or the google maps have to be saved as image.
