Graph Earth produces human readable standards compliant KML in accordance with the OGC KML Standard which may be found here. This means that Graph Earth produced KMZ files (compressed KML) may be read by any compliant KML viewer application such as GoogleEarth and ESRI's ArcGIS Explorer.  However, due to limited support for JavaScript and HTML5 in most such viewers (ArcGIS Explorer) we cannot guarantee proper rendering of embedded charts and other content. As a result, it is recommended that GoogleEarth always be used when viewing Graph Earth produced KMZ documents.
