In this course students learn how to integrate existing ESRI format data including shapefiles and geodatabases into a Google Earth format for display and manipulation. Students will master the use of various ArcGIS tools for directly converting both vector and raster data into Google Earth KML files. In addition, we will cover a number of other important topics including the ability to add a fourth dimension to your data (time), use Google Earth in an offline mode without the use of an Internet connection, create KML files through the use of a text editor, and integrate your existing imagery data into the display.
