The Google Earth Blog (note: this is not officially affiliated with Google) has an article here that might answer your question. It seems that some imagery is added to Google Earth and Google Maps Classic before being added to Google Maps. Edit: I'm unsure if you can point the OpenLayer plugin toward Google Maps Classic rather than Google Maps. Someone else ...

I think you need to use IdentityManager from the API that allows you to sign in with your arcgis.com account and then receive access to the data. Whatever users from your organization that have accounts can sign in as well. https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/jsapi/identitymanager-amd.html And here is a sample that shows what I think you are trying to ...

it is unlikely that you will be able to batch download all of Google Data. However, you can tap into Google Data using the Google Places API. If you are interested in OpenStreetMap use Overpass Turbo zoom to your area of interest with the Mapview port as the area you will download using the Bounding Box code: node ({{bbox}}); out; Of course this ...

As said in the comments above, the Global Soil Information Facilities (tutorials) website maintained, amongst others, by some of the plotKML authors and contributors gives you everything you need to produce filled polygon areas. In addition to the absolutely correct solution by @Nahm above, here's a reproducible example for future queries on the topic. ## ...

Posting this for posterity as I have just figured out facing the same issue. Because the only answer so far is just as time-consuming as moving placemarks individually in Google Earth. Create desired folders in Google Earth, then select the multiple KML / KMZ files in Windows Explorer / File Manager and drag into the respective folders in Google Earth. ...

For a point feature: You'll basically need to define with a transparency prefix (see below). In your color tag referenced in your code above (ff0000ff ) the prefix ff represents 100% opaque or 0% transparent. To get to a 50% transparency, you'd need to use the hex representation of 7F as your prefix (7F0000ff) Hex Transparency Guide in Answers From ...

All can be used in QGIS. Of course the OpenStreetMap has the data ...

Given that VBA is a programming language, in theory, it is possible to process a KMZ file. However, you must first unzip it from binary into KML format. Maybe look at how-to-parse-process-a-kmz-file and Read From Binary Files in Visual Basic for inspiration. Then you need to parse this hierarchically structured KML data and reconcile it with the relationally ...

Your link is totally irrelevant with your problem. Your link is about ArcBlueTile which is a library to add google,bing,... base maps to ArcGIS. As far as I know you can neither edit nor synchronize Kml or kmz files with ArcGIS Desktop. You should edit your kml with google earth and once you are done, import it to ArcGIS and do your stuff there (KML to ...

This tool, Export to KML developed by Kevin Martin does the work. There are some issues with the styles but at least colours and attributes are correct, and it´s plenty of options to play with the attributes, labels, etc...

EDIT: I've just confirmed that a Spatial ETL tool created using the Data Interoperability extension will bring the attributes from your KML/KMZ file back to a shapefile with the schema in tact. Just select the Dynamic Schema option in the tool creation wizard: Original: a work around would be to parse the description field for the values of the various ...

Arc2Earth Arc2Earth was designed to provide a “bridge” between ArcGIS Desktop and other GIS solutions—such as those from Google, MapBox and CartoDB, as well as other Esri solutions. Arc2Earth is simple to install, simple to use and simple to integrate with your existing GIS. However there is pricing, but its a good integration between the two. ...

The only way to have the same placemark appear in two folders in KML is 1) duplicate the placemark or 2) have NetworkLink in each folder reference the placemark in a separate KML file. In both cases, if both folders are visible then the placemark is duplicated on the map which may or may not be apparent. Google Earth does not remove duplicates. If user ...

With the <color> tag, as follows: <color>ff0000ff</color> The first two hex characters define the alpha band, or opacity. ff = completely solid 00 = completely translucent More info here

As far as I know (and I could be mistaken) there is no exact date or period of days that google waits to release their Monthly Imagery Updates. Different parts of the world are constantly being updated and you can see the areas with new imagery here: https://mapsengine.google.com/10446176163891957399-04749531680953568577-4/mapview/?authuser=0 .

I too am trying to figure this out, the best I've come up with is toggling the view off and on before synchronizing. So my key-in for syncing view 1 is: view toggle 1;view toggle 1;googleearth synch this would work too: view off 1;view on 1;googleearth synch

I have found a guide to divide maps and download them from google earth at : Downloading mosaic Google Earth maps and rectify them automatically in their correct coordinates. However after looking into it further it looks like there are simpler ways to do this using the Google Map Ripper from Blue Black Works. This should provide you with the ability to set ...

Here's a very simple version I've made: Google Street View Python Add-in Unlike the SIGGIS version, it doesn't show the Street View in a window in ArcMap. It just opens the location in your internet browser.

I would recommend looking into Cesium: http://cesiumjs.org/ I have been using it for quite a while and found it to be a great 3D solution. It is open source and provides for additional things like 3D terrain, vector graphics, billboards and 3D models.

Akio, Unfortunately what you are trying to do is very difficult. I have struggled with this a lot myself, and from what I have found in my search for a similar answer often times led to people suggesting using models with SketchUp or some other modeling software. I did however find one useful page that helped me wrap my mind around some ways around this ...

You are allowed to do with Google Earth images whatever you want, if you pay them the license fee they want. (I know this is not the answer you want to read, but you better not mess with their license terms). Openstreetmap does not have any satellite images, only road and landuse vector data. It is allowed to use bing imagery for digitizing within OSM, but ...

You're going to be doing accuracy assessment. You want to bring the data for validation (Google Earth) into ArcMap. Then you can "truth" the classification for each of your random points in a shapefile. Afterwards you can sample those same points in your classified image and compute your error matrix.

Google Earth will allow you to export drawn shapes to KML or KMZ. You can give each feature some limited attribution. You can also convert it to a shapefile later. To do this, I would first create a folder in either My Places or Temporary places: Then add a polygon to the folder: Then give it a name, a description and draw! Draw a new shape for each ...

It could be that depending on the software that you use to do the sum, if one vehicle has no data, then the final sum is invalid. As a simple workaround, you can set value to 0 (zero) for those cars/trucks without data and then do the sum. This workaround is not helpful if you want to know which car did not travel on a specific date.

You can use python library to do with this: pyKML and editing some SchemaData. Or editing .KML file directly with text editor.
