Lava Flows in Google Earth
The screenshot you see here is depicting lava flows from Kilauea Volcano
Mauna Loa in Hawaii. The flows exposed are colored differently and marked according to the year of the flow as analyzed by scientists. Download the lava flow file to see it yourself. If you hold the Control key and click on one of the flows with the mouse in GE you will see the year of that portion of the flow (a '0' means unknown). It's interesting to compare the lava flow dataset to the satellite/aerial photos in GE. This 3D model was posted by a Google Earth Community member called 'KASSPER' who apparently is a GIS professional. The Control-key click technique is a good way to annotate models like this. KASSPER has produced other interesting applications like the Wikipedia search tool.
[EDIT 3:30PM: A reader contacted me to let me know the flows came from Kilauea Volcano, not Mauna Loa. Thanks John!]
