Weather Symbols in Google Earth

Weather symbols in Google EarthStefan Geens over at OgleEarth has been playing with weather symbols for Google Earth. First he published his experiments with some basic weather symbols using the free Google SketchUp 3D modeling tool. Then, yesterday, he published an interesting application of a little-known KML feature which lets you set the "heading" of an icon. He used it to show the heading of a wind direction for a specific location. No matter which way you rotate your view from above, it shows the correct heading for the wind direction. That's a pretty cool application of the feature, and I think weather forecasters should take note. Or at least those folks who like to show weather data in a truly unique fashion (Weatherbonk perhaps?). Great work Stefan!
