Recent Weather Satellite Animations in Google Earth
Someone at the Google Earth Community named 'randomGIS' has posted two network links which will load up the most recent few hours of infrared (IR) satellite photos as a time animation in Google Earth 4. This means you can watch animations of clouds moving during the past few hours on the 3D surface of GE. Load a network link from either NOAA GOES 11 (covers western North America and the NE Pacific ocean) or the NOAA GOES 12 (covers most of North America and the NW Atlantic ocean). Once you load one up, click on the right arrow ("play") button on the right of the time slider gadget. You should see an animation of the photos begin. First time through it needs to load the images. You can adjust the speed of the animation by clicking on the little clock icon on the left side of the time slider gadget and adjusting "Animation speed". If you plan to use these network links frequently, simply save them in your "My Places". They won't take up much space in memory until you turn them on.
It amazes me that weather forecasters haven't done more to support GE on their web sites. Especially with the addition of the time animation with GE 4. NOAA has done a few things with GE/KML, but not nearly enough yet in my opinion. Hopefully now that GE 4 is out of beta we'll see more official adoption of weather data using GE/KML.
