Using The KML Time Embedder, Concluded Continuing on from the last post about the KML Time Embedder (download just the executable here, or the full install here), a utility to embed time data into a KML file: Correct for local time zone: The default time zone for Google Earth times is UTC (aka Greenwich Mean Time), so a day runs from 00:00 to 23:59 UTC; you can set the time for your local time zone, but you have to know where to go in the time options to do this. For longer periods of time, the offset between local time and UTC might not make a difference. But if the time period is short, and the exact start and end of the day need to occur for the data’s local time zone, then check this box, and select the offset from UTC from the dropdown; this specifies the timezone for which the data is valid: Embed Time Information: Once you’ve set the input and output filenames, this control is enabled, but you’ll get an error message if you haven’t set a beginning or end time for TimeSpan, or a single time for TimeStamp.
Although KML has quickly become the main format used for map annotation, it has a number of advanced features which only have limited support outside of Google Earth. Some of these absences are logical - for example, few mapping systems support 3d views and buildings. With the current pace of development it is likely that many of the other advanced features will be added to future versions of these products. One of the advanced features that will almost certainly see much wider support is that of animation. This article looks at KML's animation and dynamic update features. There are a lot of mapping formats in circulation, but few support the concept of time. Animation and Dynamic Updates with KML

KML Reference - KML - Google Code This section contains an alphabetical reference for all KML elements defined in KML Version 2.2, as well as elements in the Google extension namespace. The class tree for KML elements is shown below. In this diagram, elements to the right on a particular branch in the tree are extensions of the elements to their left. For example, Placemark is a special kind of Feature. It contains all of the elements that belong to Feature, and it adds some elements that are specific to the Placemark element. KML is an open standard officially named the OpenGIS® KML Encoding Standard (OGC KML).

Some of the work I do for school and my job requires that I make maps. I’ve never taken a class on how to make maps or analyze data sets featured in maps (what GIS does), so I learn as I go. There’s no one around me I can call upon when I have questions that need immediate answers. Well, there’s me! Because of this, I must quickly find a solution or workaround myself.
