Hi all,

Is it possible to search the KML generated file by google earth which contains place marks?

For example:

I need the content of the sub element (Name) for the placemark element and its coordinates.
in other way (view to me every name of the place mark and its coordinates to make it searchable by C# application using the the content of the element (name) as a keyword)

This is a sample of the KML file:
