I have geolocated imagery which I would like to plot in Google Earth. I have the 4 corner points of each image, and I am currently laying the images down using GroundOverlay and gx:LatLonQuad.
My problem is that I have a lot of images (they are in sets of 20-25, and I have 10 or 20 of these sets to lay down), and these KMLs will be ingested into another program. I would like to have all the images in each set of 20-25 in a single KML file.
The images in a set are close together (in fact, they are contiguous) and about 200 yards wide. Although the individual images in a set are contiguous and quadrilaterals, the overall shape (of all the contiguous images in a set) does not form a rectangle or quadrilateral, but more of a zigzag path.
Is there a feature that works like MultiGeometry for shapes which I can use with GroundOverlay and gx:LatLonQuad to put multiple ground overlaid images in one KML?
My individual KMLs look like this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2" xmlns:gx="http://www.google.com/kml/ext/2.2"> <GroundOverlay> <Icon> <href>files\image1.jpg</href> </Icon> <altitudeMode>clampToGround</altitudeMode> <gx:LatLonQuad> <coordinates> ...image 1 coordinates here... </coordinates> </gx:LatLonQuad> </GroundOverlay> </kml>
I would like to have a single KML file with multiple ground overlays, with all the images in the same "files" folder. Is there a way to do this, or something equivalent?
