I have had some success with bringing KML layers from ArcGIS into Google Earth. It is not very well documented, especially since Google Earth is depreciated, but you can still do it. You must have access to a server that can host the KML layers, and it must be shared to a public level so your API will be able to access it. Below is the code for embedding a ...

Google Maps Api v3 supports rendering a vector KML that is stored on either a remote server or on the same server... Just use QGIS to create/convert any vector format to KML. Your question wasn't specific to the need maybe you can expand if this isn't helpful or obvious

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.

What you are looking to do is draw a polygon onto the map using a series of coordinates for the inside and outside bounds. If you want a solid filled polygon, do not include the points for the inner shape. The following code would produce a polygon with a missing center. There are comments within to the code to help guide you as well. I hope this is what ...

@Cameron Sloan Number 3 will be difficult for any application to accomplish because this is a data problem. Google has access to volumes of Digital Globe imagery (among other sources) which allows for historic imagery comparisons. ESRI and other vendors do not have access to such data similiar to the scale of Google.

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. ...

ArcGIS is coming out with ArcGIS Earth in December. They are announcing it this week and I am sure that the beta will be out soon. Since ArcGIS API supports all that you listed (even 3D in the 4.0 Beta API) there shouldn't be any of the criteria mentioned that ArcGIS Earth won't cover. I will update this answer when I get more information.

Kiks73, I've been using TerraExplorer by Skyline Software Systems (http://skylinesoft.com/skylineglobe/corporate/products/terraexplorer.aspx?) for years at my client site and TE is the closest application I've seen as a one-to-one replacement for GE. TE can handle your list of items (except for #3) out of the box and TE's API is also open. Let me know if ...

a work around would be to parse the description field for the values of the various attribute fields you need and copy them into the appropriate fields. And next time, get your client to add attributes into an excel spread sheet or something so that you can just join it back to your shapefile for updating.

Here is a guide that I found that walks you through some steps using ArcMap, Google Drive Fusion Tables, and MS Excel to convert KML files to .shp files while preserving the attributes. Link to site that has the guide.

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 ...

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 ...

you're in luck. the beta version of the 4.0 ArcGIS API for JavaScript includes 3D support and was released on July 16th. https://developers.arcgis.com/javascript/beta/

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.

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 ...

Imagery from Google Earth cannot be downloaded into ArcMap. There are two options here--exporting your vector data to a KML file and validating in Google Earth or use the ArcGIS basemap imagery and check points within ArcMap.

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 ...
