Have a look at Mapillary I think they share the same goals as you and they are making this possible. I have not used it yet (no time) but it looks like a good option to StreetView. The How to Do it is here and it looks like they will make all the data and images available to developers via an api. The quoted terms are: API Usage We allow the use of our ...

I found the solution using ArcGIS. In ArcMap before you export the layer, you need to set some specifications rightly for the exported kml file properties. Go to Layer properties, then from the HTML Popup tab uncheck "Show content for this layer using the HTML Popup tool" check-box. Then convert in any means X-tools or ArcToolbox to kml doen't matter.

You could save out the KML and then use notepad++ to do a search and replace using regular expressions. So in notepad++ I would use: and in the replace tab just place <description></description>

I had the same problem today. Using the built-in Layer to KML tool and XTools didn't produce a nice image. But i brought in my georeferenced image into Global Mapper and it worked much better without any blurriness. Edit: I created the KML/KMZ in Global Mapper. I loaded the JPG, then used File, Export, Export Web Format. I checked on the Super Overlay Setup ...

At the Genealogy & Family History Stack Exchange I just found that: There is a software program called Family Atlas (www.familyatlas.com) that will import data from a variety of sources, including GEDCOM. If the coordinate of an event place is included, it will use it. Otherwise it will look up a coordinate based on the place name. It has ...

http://sourceforge.net/projects/gedcomtokml/ should do the GEDCOM to KML conversion. You can find the info on it here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Map_My_Ancestors It seems straightforward enough.

You make no mention of the Coordinate System for your raster data so I suspect that it is different from that used by Google Earth. The Google Earth projection page says: Google Earth uses Simple Cylindrical projection with a WGS84 datum for its imagery base. Use the Properties of your raster dataset(s) to check the coordinate system(s) being used. ...

Everything you need (I think!) is provided by my python package of geodesic routines available from PyPI. Documentation is available here. This is an improvement over Vincenty in that it's more accurate and the solution of the inverse problem is always found. In addition, several auxiliary quantities are computed. For details, see Algorithms for geodesics. ...

Depending on the nature of your project, you may want to consider using a spatial database. You could probably whip up a solution to this relatively quickly using Python's psycopg2 with PostgreSQL + PostGIS. Tutorial on psycopg2 Linear referencing in PostGIS Without knowing more about your project though, it's hard to prescribe which of the available ...

I see that you have a tag for ArcGIS, so you could use linear referencing with ArcGIS, similar tools are available in QGIS and both work well with Python. Linear referencing would allow you to place a point ALONG the route instead of placing a point at a given distance from the starting point of your route. Vicenty is probably overkill for the distances ...

Resetting the date works fine but don't do it on your good computer as it seems to mess up anti virus etc, use an old spare if you have one then save the kml file across. I just tried QGIS for the first time and once you get the hang of it works really well.

I believe that the distances in Google Earth assume the earth is a sphere with radius equal to the equatorial radius. (You should check for yourself by constructing and loading simple kml polylines with coordinates, e.g., 0,0 0,90 and 0,0 90,0.) So expect differences on the order of 1 part in 300 in Google's distances compared to the geodesic distance. To ...

You can find a statement of the plugin author with a link to the terms of use here: https://www.mail-archive.com/qgis-developer@lists.osgeo.org/msg21665.html Search for "you must not access map tiles" in the TOS (https://developers.google.com/maps/terms). That's why the OpenLayers plugin is using only the Javascript API with a WebKit Browser. My ...

I used this method. There is also a video showing you how to do it on YouTube. It's very simple VBA to set up, but it only works to sync GE to ArcMap only.

So I stumbled on the question and it lead me to OpenLayers 2.1 Beginners Guide by Erik Hazzard. It looks to be just what I need to figure out how to make a web map application.
