Google Add Ons Workshop Winter 2011 [licensed for non-commercial use only] / FrontPage. Flight Maps. Google Earth - Complete US Air Routes. Home > Flight Maps > Google Earth - Complete US Air Routes A couple of weeks ago I put together a small collection of Google Earth airline route maps for various countries.

Google Earth - Complete US Air Routes

These work interactively, using mouse hovers over airport Icons to activate and reveal destinations. The previous files each had fewer than a thousand routes, and were fairly limited in scope. So, I was wondering, how effectively do these scale up ? As it turns out, surprisingly well. The following Google Earth networklink opens a file including 13287 scheduled routes within the USA, between 714 airports. Flight Maps (USA) (2 MB) Data is from the US Bureau of Transportation’s most recent monthly flight stats: October 2007.

Daylight Hours, Timeline

Each 5-day step of the animation displays a series of coloured bands. Boundaries between these bands are isochrones, representing whole numbers of daylight hours, 0 - 24. The Black and Yellow regions at the poles correspond to perpetual night and daylight. Calculations are approximate, and decrease in accuracy away from the Equator and Prime Meridian. Google Sky Constellation Boundaries. Home > Other Planets > Google Sky Constellation Boundaries In a recent post, OgleEarth mentioned the lack of constellation divisions in Google Sky’s default layers.

As Stefan says, these are pretty useful landmarks for finding your way around the night sky. I’m guessing GSky might include something like this eventually, but until it does, here’s a simple add-on KML file which does the job. Google Sky Constellations (130kB) To keep things simple the file just includes boundary lines. The coordinates for the KML were drawn from Davenhall & Leggett’s “Catalogue of Constellation Boundary Data”, from the file for equinox and equator 2000. One more thing: If you turn on Google Sky’s grid (View menu -> Grid) you’ll notice the borders are slightly skewed compared with the vertical and horizontal red lines of the grid. . Ferris Wheel Animation in Google Earth.

The only survivor out of five similar wheels designed by Walter Bassett, located in Chicago, Paris, London, Blackpool and Vienna. During the Second World War the wheel was badly damaged, and the original 30 gondolas replaced with 15. For those interested in classic movies, Orson Welles took a ride on this in ‘The Third Man’ and directly afterwards gave his famous ‘cuckoo clock’ speech. Viewing Tips After the file loads, the time control appears near the top of the screen. Click on the white clock gadget to the left of this to access the time control options.Change the repeat mode to ‘wrap’.Use the “Play” button (the triangle to the right of the time slider) to see it animate.Terrain (Layers, bottom left in GE) should be toggled on.The file has 2 modes - one with the original 30 gondolas, another with the current 15.
