WEFOUNDUsing Google Earth™ Bring the World into Your Classroom Levels 6-8


Since I put together the Google Earth animated flights from USA airports  (more of those coming up soon!), I’ve been meaning to check out the same thing without the time element – a KML file where routes only display as you hover the mouse over various airports.  Essentially a Google Earth, 3D equivalent of those interactive flight maps you see on airlines’ websites. 

As a side effect it does create some navigation difficulties ,  but I still think it makes a lot of sense to de-clutter the screen, without forcing the user through a series of menus or pop-ups. More importantly, the effect is actually fairly straightforward to achieve using KML’s <StyleMap> entity. (Check this out for a good description of how it works.)

So, what I’ve done is applied mouseover effects to a (near) complete route map of scheduled flights within the UK , Ireland , Channel Islands and Isle of Man .  That’s about 800 one-way routes, between 69 airports.   Download the file here:

For starters, I came across an  article that details this exact scenario.  However, being nearly 4 years old (as of 2013) the article is quite dated, has dead links, and is otherwise missing some very critical pointers.  What follows is an updated overview of the same process from that article, with additional notes and steps to follow.

I wrote the following some time ago, and no longer can assist with troubleshooting.  The fact is, this technique/software was already 5+ years old when I came across it, and as time goes by, it only becomes older and more unsupported.  I will not be answering any further comments on this thread, as I cannot help and have myself moved on to 3D Ripper DX .  That being said, if you still wish to proceed, take it slow, read everything, and good luck!!!

Note: you may need to Middle Mouse Button click inside Google Earth to ensure it is the active window.  Most important though is to ensure Google Earth is still rendering buildings before you start the capture, otherwise GLntercept may not work and you will have to close Google Earth and start over, or try changing your Camera Angle to for Google Earth to render more geometry.

The app is adding Street View into the app so that users can easily transition between 3D satellite views and 360 camera captures on the ground level.

It’s pretty easy to navigate the new feature, users can zoom into a location using the VR controllers and can pull up a lens to take a look directly into the 360 sphere. It doesn’t look like you’ll be able to do anything too crazy like walk around the photos, but this update gets you a little closer to the action.
