Why Does the Earth's Atmosphere Stay on the Earth?
by BooTeK in Hobbies, Games & Toys
The earth's atmosphere is kept close to the earth by gravity. Just as the earth's gravity keeps you firmly on the ground, it also acts on the gases of the earth's atmosphere, holding it in place and allowing us to breathe. Earth's Early AtmosphereAs the earth formed, its gravitational pull attracted elements from nearby space, such as hydrogen and helium. These formed the earth's initial atmosp

Is is possible to use the stand alone google earth on linux as a [google-earth-plugin] replacement?
by VirtualLarry in Operating Systems

I should use a web pager that takes advantage of the [google-earth-plugin]

The problem is that I'm on linux (ubuntu) and there isn't a [google-earth-plugin] for us.

I was wondering if there is a way to use the stand alone google earth (available on Linux) for render those maps.


Google Earth Tour does not open balloon on Google Earth iOS / Android App
by General Mills in Android

I'm creating Google Earth Tours with KML. They work just fine on the Desktop version of Google Earth. However, on the iOS Google Earth App or the Android Google Earth App the balloons do not open when approached.

Here is a link to an example KML. Just press Play Me in Google Earth to play the tour. In iOS/Android, it should start automatically. A balloon should open when the animati

by Seattle in Development Tools & Services

Good morning, eveyrone

I'm working on an application using Google Earth and I had two questions.

The first question involves the pop up window. I want to get an external website to appear in this bubble. I can either hardcode the website into the description of the placemark or use an iFrame. Are there any other options I can use to get a website into Google Earth?

How Did the Earth's Atmosphere Come to Earth?
by Ichinisan in Education
The atmosphere of Earth contains essential elements that sustain life. For example, the atmosphere includes oxygen, which people need to breathe and which is necessary for cellular respiration. Plants use carbon dioxide in the air in their own respiration processes. Since the Earth's atmosphere creates an environment in which organisms thrive, a discussion of how the Earth's atmosphere formed need

Google Earth embedded in web page looks different than when in Google Earth
by KingGuppy in Web Design

I have a KMZ that displays fine in Google Earth. When I embed the same KMZ on my web site, SOME of the numbers I use as Placemarks are now extremely bolded. It makes them almost unreadable.

I look at the KML and there is no styling to the Placemark that would make this happen and, like I said, it looks fine in the Google Earth program.

Any ideas?
