R plots and Google Earth in the browser

Posted by omegahat on March 12, 2010

In addition to playing with KML as a graphics device, I wrote up some notes that introduce how to put Google Earth into a Web browser and then use elements of the JavaScript API for Google Earth. This progresses to show how to add HTML form elements such as buttons and checkboxes to control the Google Earth display. And it ends by showing how to put an SVG plot created in R beside the Google Earth plugin and have that SVG plot be interactive. As the viewer moves the mouse over the time series in the R plot, the Google Earth display is rotated to show the corresponding US city.  The example is not necessarily very compelling, but the mechanism should allow us to do a lot more interesting things.
