Any good ideas about using Google Earth to present self contained geospatial data&app to a client or senior management?
The broader issue being explored here is that many of our clients are not likely to maintain GIS systems themselves, or be competent enough to install a free app and then browse the data. And we would like the legacy we leave to a client to be independent of us, so we don't want them to be relying on our server or any one else's server. A single file container (yes I know you will say SpatiaLite but what app?) that can be USB'd or the like.
One feature I really like in GE, is to geolocate photos and have them appear on the map, to provide a record, or some interactivity etc. I can do the same in QGIS, but not without knowing a lot about the installation. In GE, I know that if they have got the KMZ, they will find the photos.
And what about senior management? Because you know they are luddites at best, won't have time to view it when you have time etc.
So my thought here is to put GE up as the app, and KMZ as the container, and ask the question in this forum.
What is the best example of GE (or your choice app) as a self contained presentation?
