Global Paleogeographic Time Animation

Paleogeographic Time Animation (continents) in Google EarthAn excellent example of the new time animation feature in Google Earth 4 has been created which illustrates the history of Earth's continents from the pre-Cambrian period to the present (the last 600 million years). The animation was created by Google Earth Community member Valery Hronusov who is a GIS scientist living in Perm, Russia. Load the global palegeographic animation , and turn on the network link which will appear in your Temporary Places. Double click on the folder to get a global view (or just zoom out to space). The time slider gadget will appear (you must be using Google Earth 4 version 4.0.2080 or greater) in the upper portion of your screen. Slide the gadget back and forth (the first time you do this it may pause to load the different versions of the earth's continents). You can select the "play" button (a triangular button like the one on a TV remote) to the right of the time gadget to play a loop of the animation. Great work Valery!

See other things Valery has developed which have been written about at GEB.

    Neato! If only National Geographic would do something like this with all their material.

    That is great! One issue... my time scale starts with 31 Dec 1999. Any ideas?

    Thank you Valery!
