This is a cool tool that lets you check out different basemap providers and gives you the references to the tiles for your code. It's based on leaflet but could still be helpful to you. leaflet basemap provider demo

No, you may not. Google does not own the imagery they display in Google Earth, and so cannot give anyone else a licence to use that imagery for any purpose other than screenshots - which may be used unaltered in commercial reports or presentations: i.e. single, static, ungeoreferenced images retaining full attribution to Google and its suppliers. You do not ...

I think that might be because there is no single, clear answer. I'll try to summarize my knowledge and the two most related questions: Google Earth, Google satellite, and Bing aerial accuracy How accurate are measurements in Google Earth? Let's start by taking Google Earth and even GIS out of the equation and only consider how accurate a measurement on an ...

Can I use the Google Earth imagery in my presentations, reports, website, etc.? Once you license Google Earth Pro, you can use Google Earth Pro images and data for marketing purposes as long as this data is not sold to any third parties. Additionally, the images must retain their copyright and source information. Images and videos used in on-air ...

Both are the same. Google Earth uses the SRTM elevation data according to this topic on the Google Earth Help Forum: The global terrain dataset is 90M SRTM It says the same thing on Wikipedia: Google Earth uses digital elevation model (DEM) data collected by NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM).

I created GEOS, the Google Earth Overlay Server for exactly this purpose. That's a python server running locally and creating KML overlays for tiled maps. You can specify custom mapsources in XML-format: <customMapSource> <name>Example Map</name> <!-- Name of the map as displayed in Google Earth --> <minZoom>5</...

https://github.com/ChrisStayte/ArcMap-To-Google-Earth/blob/master/README.md This Add-In might accomplish what you are trying to do. When you click the tool, you will zoom to your arcmap extent in google earth.

It looks like your original raster, r1, wasn't in lat-long (you don't tell us anything about it, so its a guess). When you project this into lat-long for r2, your original raster gets rotated slightly, and padded out with missing values (NA). This makes the extent in lat-long not be the same as the extent in the original CRS - which is what you are seeing. ...

Rather than linking the two together, use the OpenLayers plugin which allows you to view Google satellite imagery in QGIS. You can then edit and save your data in QGIS as a KML (right click save as on your layer) and import into Google Earth if required for fly through's / oblique screenshots etc.

I'll be honest, I don't know Google Earth Pro at all really. However, I know ArcGIS Explorer Desktop. It is a very useful program for me and my organization. It has a relatively wide variety of capabilities compared to at least what I'd expect for a free program from a commercial software company like ESRI. It can consume a wide variety of GIS datasets ...

To answer #1, how about looping through this google developers snippet for each .kml file. Something close to this batch script: for %f in (*.shp) do ( ogr2ogr -f "KML" %%~nf.kml %f ) The %%~nf.kml might need work - you might have to concatenate %%~nf and .kml If this gets you into KML Format, how about using Google Earth Pro to modify your ...

I've measured the lengths of 9 different runways and compared those "ground length" measurements against their lengths given by WikiPedia. The largest error was +0.0336%, the smallest was -0.0013% and the average was +0.0075%. Runway lengths are measured between the outer edges of their threshold markings as explained here: https://www.faa.gov/airports/...

ESRI has some great base maps: ESRI Base maps (check licensing) Mapbox has some great base maps: Mapbox Base Maps (paid service) Mapquest has some great base maps: Mapquest Base Maps

You gave your softwares something gibberish- garbage. You need to cleanse your data before project in a projection-space.**---Please clean up your Lat-Long column--- **For instance i am attaching some screenshot as an upshot of quick look..!! Long Lat

Google Maps Engine works with WGS84 EPSG-Code 4326, so you'll need to project the shapefile into the correct projection. ArcGIS: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#//00170000007m000000 QGIS: http://docs.qgis.org/2.2/de/docs/training_manual/vector_analysis/reproject_transform.html?highlight=transformation

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. ...

This is a part of the "median line" problem of maritime boundaries. I consider the solution of this problem using the azimuthal equidistant projection in Section 14 of Geodesics on an ellipsoid of revolution. Implementation of the general azimuthal equidistant projection is given by GeographicLib (for C++ and MATLAB). There are implementations of basic ...

Google Earth displays the extended data in a formatted HTML table if no description exists. If a feature has a description then Google Earth shows that description in the popup balloon regardless of whether it has extended data or not. If you want extended data and description to appear at the same time then you can use a BalloonStyle as a template that ...

Well watershed is quite advanced spatial analysis and I really doubt that Google Earth is focused on this kind of things. I have to say I am not using GE often, but after quick look at capabilities of pro version I would say it is not possible.

You can't produce movies on the free Google Earth software (at least with my current version on OSX). There is a Google Earth tag placed on the video from the Pro version, and you have the option to produce videos with a range of resolution. For still images, you can produce a range of different image sizes also.

Without modifying your GPS data, your best solution is to modify the altitude in GE to "Clamped to ground" as shown in the image below (right-click on a layer in GE and go to properties, look under the Altitude tab). Perhaps this is what you mean by "Extend to ground". However, without modifying your GPS data itself, this will probably be your only ...

I think you should have a look at ESRI's new ArcGIS Earth. It is also a free application, and is in many ways comparable to Google Earth, albeit the display of some of the imagery not as sharp and detailed as in Google Earth. However, the great thing about ArcGIS Earth is that you can very easily add, and overlay, any WM(T)S service on top of the globe, ...

I use Ctrl+F and it search through my places, It doesn't shortlist found result only, but still can go to searched places with up and down arrow beside place find search box. I tested using Google Earth Pro.

You must properly specify Name and Description fields. See screenshot: Also there are several options, that can be configured during exporting to KML (depends of selected driver): http://gdal.org/drv_kml.html http://gdal.org/drv_libkml.html

Looks like each icon should have its own path in Google Earth. For example the path for the yellow pushpin is as shown below. http://maps.google.com/mapfiles/kml/pushpin/ylw-pushpin.png This is the path you would have to add if you did not have it and you wanted to add or change, i.e add the specific name of the icon you are interested in to the end of ...

In a KML file, the Icon used by a point placemark can either be defined via an inline style, in the Placemark itself, or it can be in a shared style that each placemark refers to via a styleUrl tag. In either case, the tags to define the icon style will look something like this: <Style id="mystyle"> <IconStyle> <scale>1.3</scale&...

I can't tell how that video was created, but you should be able to do something pretty similar with a combination of several techniques in Google Earth Pro. I'll list the general steps here, and you should be able to find more detailed instructions on each piece in the online documentation. Import your GPX file into Earth Pro (drag/drop works), and check ...

You probably want to use 'set'. It can set a property to the whole featurecollection: for (var i = 0; i < 11; i++){ if (i === 0){ randomSamples = ee.FeatureCollection.randomPoints(toList_pasto.get(i),500).set('Class', i) print('Collection number: '+ i, randomSamples) } else { var newCol = ee.FeatureCollection.randomPoints(toList_pasto....

I think the best way to automate this is to save the qldglobe.kml from https://www.business.qld.gov.au/business/support-tools-grants/services/mapping-data-imagery/queensland-globe/install-mac-pc onto your desktop. Then assuming that you have the file association for *.kml files set to Google Earth Pro then double-clicking on the Queensland Globe icon on ...

It's a bit late, but I set up something similarly a while back. Users pointed to a network link that was updated via FME, which fed from our GIS and SAP databases. We came up with the designation that all edits must be performed in a system of record (GIS or SAP) and an FME script would run twice daily to push those updates to the network link. Google ...
