Google Earth 3D Basic Results (XYZ Plot)

Report Name: Google Earth Basic Results (XYZ Plot)


Report Type: Standard


Description: In order to use EQuIS Google Earth Reports for commercial purposes, you must obtain the appropriate license of Google Earth. The Google Earth output, which shows a table when clicking on a location, has been improved for readability by adding color to alternative rows. 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 error message where P = the number of input parameters, and D = the number of input dates.


"Report did not generate output. Please try again. Please reduce the number of parameters and/or dates to be contoured (params=P,dates=D)"



EQuIS Google Earth Reports do not actually require or directly use Google Earth or any other Google service. The reports merely create *.kml (and *.kmz) files. Some of the charts are created using Google Charts (by sending individual data points for the chart).

Other applications besides Google Earth (such as ArcGIS Explorer) can read *.kml files. EQuIS reports have not been tested extensively with anything other than Google Earth.

An EQuIS license does not provide legal license or permission to use Google Earth. Users are responsible to use Google Earth legally.
