An Integrated Approach to Migrating Mapping Data to Google Earth

  1. 1. An integrated approach to migrate mapping data to Google Earth using Workbench Terry Steinkey GIS Project Management
  2. 2. Overview   Background & Experience   Google Earth (GE) fundamentals   How to utilize Workbench to effectively migrate data to GE   Case Study - Client request  Workbench as the preferred ETL solution for GE   Ten effective ways to leverage your GIS, CAD and databases in GE   Value proposition  why use Workbench?   Cool tips and tricks for mapping in GE
  3. 3. Background & Experience   16 years GIS, CAD & mapping experience   Oil & Gas front-end specific   Started using SAFE Software in 1996   Involved in over 5,000+ client projects extending worldwide for E&P, service, financial and environmental companies   Most projects are constructed using ESRI ArcView, MicroStation and in-house software applications   Innovative, cost effective solutions for clients
  4. 4. Google Earth Fundamentals   Keyhole Corporation designed the program ‘Earth Viewer’ in 2001   Resulted in the now famous KML extension, which stands for Keyhole Markup Language   Sold to Google in Oct. 2004, and re-launched as Google Earth in 2005   KML version 2.2 is the current accepted format of the OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium)   Multi-platform (Windows, Macs, Linux & iPhone)
  5. 5. Google Earth Fundamentals   Ties in well with other Open formats, such as GML (Geography Markup Language), WFS (Web Feature Service), WMS (Web Map Service) & XML (Extensible Markup Language)   KML is the default extension for GE   KMZ is a compressed version of a KML file   Thanks to SAFE, most data types can be easily migrated to GE   Points, Lines & Polygons   Raster data   Models
  6. 6. Google Earth Fundamentals   These data types can stand alone or be integrated into one single file   Data migrated to GE must be reprojected to Geographic WGS84 coordinates (LL84)   There are two versions of GE available   Google Earth (free)   Google Earth PRO (for commercial external use - $$$)
  7. 7. GE Disclaimer   If you use GE for any external commercial purpose, you will need to license GE Pro. Examples of external use include creating and distributing KML/KMZ files or movies, using imagery from GE in reports and presentations, and developing information that will be displayed or distributed outside of your organization. The cost is $400 annually   There is a free 7 day trial available from their web site http://earth.google.com/   If you use the software for internal uses ONLY, then you do not need to upgrade to GE Pro

  10. 10. Ten effective ways to leverage your GIS, CAD and databases in GE 1.  Point, Line, Polygon Data in a KMZ 2.  Satellite data tasking 3.  Fly a path 4.  2D & 3D base mapping 5.  View & validate seg-p1 data (view database features) 6.  Apply covers (with sliders  to hide imagery) 7.  Server side KMZ deployment 8.  Import Raster data (geological, topo maps) 9.  3D Models (add with 3D buildings) 10.  Extrusions
  11. 11. Extrusions
  12. 12. Value Proposition – Why use Workbench?   Low cost   Easy to use / Intuitive layout   It’s FAST!!!   Don’t need to be a programmer to be an effective user   Dramatic results for clients   Easy to automate processes and serve out data   One-stop solution for all formats
  13. 13. Mapping in GE – Cool Tips & Tricks   Covers   Sliders   View data in 4D (3D + time)   Satellite imagery over time   Field development (new cutlines & well pads)   Environmental management (deforestation)   Can be viewed as a movie and looped   Dates can be controlled   Tie in WMS (web mapping service)   Federal culture datasets from Geobase or CanVec (NTDB)   WFS (web feature service) will become mainstream
  14. 14. Mapping in GE – Cool Tips & Tricks   Compile your world Geospatially in 3D   using free modeling tools such as SketchUp (accurate to 1 inch relative to the ground)   Portable laser scanners are becoming relevant
  15. 15. Closing remarks   Start simple and then add complexity   Compare the file size differences between a KML & KMZ file. It’s big!   If you can dream it up, it can be created   With a few tweaks, GE could become THE best low-cost global mapping solution.   SAFE Software provides THE leading software bridge to be a part of that building process
