Google Earth Water Levels (3D Cylinders)

Report Name: Google Earth Water Levels (3D Cylinders)


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 report prompts you to select a saved Water Level Report. The output of the report shows the water level as a vertical cylinder at each location. The height of the cylinder represents the water level (taller cylinders show greater water elevation). 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.



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.
