I'm trying to find a way of creating regions for 3D models. It seems simple enough but there doesn't appear to be any examples of KML anywhere. The closest I've found is in the Keyhole Markup Language Guide where there is an example of 'Region for a 3D Model' which is perfect for displaying one 3D model. As you zoom in on it and as view criteria are met, the model displays in Google Earth. This is it here:
I've got this kml to work perfectly on one of my 3D models. But I need to group dozens of them in one region so they all 'appear' in the same manner as the single model.
The models are arranged in folders so it's simply a matter of finding a script or a program that will read all the coordinates of the different models in a folder and then display them like the single model.
My biggest problem is that I'm by no means a kml expert, programmer or anything else vaguely qualified to write a script to automate the process across many 3D models. I'm a copy and paste, trial and error kind of person. That's why I've been trying to find a sample kml somewhere on the web that I can adapt.
I'm creating this Google Earth map as a volunteer for a new museum project underway in Vanuatu. We can't afford to get people to do this for us so I offer to help in any way I can. So if you know of of any scripts I can modify or adapt, or a program that could do this for me, I'd be most grateful if you would pass the details on.
