Google Earth Analytical Results (XYZ Plot)

Report Name: Google Earth: Analytical 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. This Google Earth Report uses a saved Analytical Results User Report as the primary input parameter. The Analytical Results output is exported into to a *.kmz, and separated by chemical with each sampling date. Multiple sampling dates can be displayed in animation using Google Earth's time animation bar.


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:


"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.



EQuIS Google Earth Reports do not actually require or directly use Google Earth or any other Google service, the reports merely create kml (*.kml, *.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.
