The script is in the beta phase. Please report suggestions and bugs here.

The script exports all "coordinate" templates having the format

"{{coordinate|56_42.9_N_011_30.5_E|56°42.9'N 011°30.5'E|Anholt}}"

and creates the kml-file for Google Earth.

The first coorinate (56_42.9_N_011_30.5_E) is the most relevant - it will be used to generate the placemark. The second coordinate is just for formatted output. The third parameter is for additional description. You can leave it blank.
