Report Name: Google Earth Location Parameter (Contour)
Report Type: Standard
This report prompts you to select a date range and one (or more) location parameters.
The output of this report shows values of each parameter represented as a three dimensional contour. The Places tree lists each parameter. Underneath each parameter there are folders for each of the days where values exist for that parameter. Values from each day are interpolated using a Nearest Neighbor algorithm. The interpolated values are then displayed using a color palette ranging from blue (low) to red (high). Each color in the palette is shown as a folder, so the user can check/uncheck that folder to show/hide values in that range.
This report is computationally intensive, and interpolates a unique grid for each parameter and date. For example, a site may have only 100 different records, but 25 different dates. In this case, the report would interpolate 25 different grids, and potentially consume vast system resources. Please also note that there are limitations to the size and complexity of KML/KMZ files supported in Google Earth. Selecting too many parameters and/or too large a date range may result in the following message:
"Report did not generate output. Please try again.
Please reduce the number of parameters and/or dates to be contoured (params=P,dates=D)"
where P = the number of input parameters, and D = the number of input dates.
This report includes data over the selected date range. You can drag the time slider or press the Play button to watch the values change over time.
The Google Earth output, which shows a table when clicking on a location, has been improved for readability by adding color to alternative rows.
