Location API again

Location API again

Postby topofsteel » Wed Feb 18, 2015 12:58 am

I have read through several old threads concerning this, but the links to outside sites/scripts were broken. I am going through the process of moving the selection box and grabbing terrain over and over again to get an acceptable resolution. I am looking for a way to automate that process. Possibly with a nested for loop moving the selection box incrementally. I have programming experience but i'm new to Ruby. Are there any similar scripts, starting points or other solutions? Thanks.

to topofsteel:
I have been manipulating GE terrains via Sketchup for many years.
My purpose is to create contour slices, color them and end up with a color-graded contour map.
It works very well - 99% automated, but *only* once the original terrains are manually imported - and even then, problems can arise if the imported terrains don't overlap correctly.

I have tried to intercept the Sketchup "Add more imagery" menu option.
I have a partial result, which means I can *begin* to "talk" to the GE map server, but then that communication link fails... obviously, I don't have the correct classes/methods available in my context...

Any thoughts or experiences you (or anybody else) might have on this subject area are more than welcome. :D
