Putting non-buildings onto GE? Help please.

Postby leedeetee » Sat Mar 27, 2010 12:22 pm

Hi all,

Apologies if this is in the wrong place but I am wondering if you guys, can help me, help out a friend.

We are initially wondering two things:

1) if it's possible to upload our user-defined geographical boundaries (say of voting wards, or catchement areas etc) to a layer on google earth and perhaps be able to stylise them? Nothing too fancy of course. The boundaries could be many miles wide, but I suppose we could make these smaller and divide them?
2) add graphical data to these geographical boundaries so our layers become like a 3d graph? This could be via the extrusion of the actual boundaries themselves, or by adding a number of graphical icons.

Obviously, we know this won't be accepted as part of the 3d warehouse! :)

Suggestions or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Whatever model you make can be placed on Google Earth. If you create a Borg ship, that can be placed on Google Earth, maybe hovering over the White House.

It will be accepted on to the 3D Warehouse, as long as it's not indecent, but it just won't be accepted on to the Google Earth 3D Buildings layer. But anyone looking on the 3DW will be able to download the model and see it on GE.

As you say, there are issues with being able to take a GE snapshot of areas too large, but these issues won't be too difficult to work out.

Thanks John,

Actually just found this: http://www.sgrillo.net/googleearth/gegraph.htm

Which, although I haven't played on it, looks like what we are after.

Interesting link, thanks, but don't think you can customise the actual areas can you? They have to be single points as far as I can see?
