Shared data

Google Earth Library

Instructions: Download the file, and double click (or right click) it to open Google Earth. Some of the data sets are dynamic, so time can be controled with the slider at the upper left of the screen. The images may take a few moments to load. You can save the file in Google Earth by dragging the layer to “my places.” [Matlab code to generate Google Earth files with data is here.]
