Draping images over the Earth's surface.
Drapes a given image over the Earth's surface. The image boundaries are defined by the value of input variables "N" (North), "E" (East), "S" (South), and "W" (West).
In addition to the above, a number of options can be set regarding the appearance of the groundoverlay. Assigning values to the parameters can be accomplished by inclusion of an alternating sequence of parameters and their value. The table below provides an overview of the authorized options. The order in which the parameters are included does not matter. Please be aware that the options are case-sensitive. Examples are provided further down.
Latitudes on the Southern hemisphere must be passed as negative values. Same for longitudes on the Western hemisphere.
Latitudes and longitudes should be passed in units of decimal degrees (also known as fractional degrees). Google Earth uses Simple Cylindrical projection (also known as Plate Carée) with a WGS84 datum.
Supported image file formats are: '.jpg', '.png', '.gif' and '.bmp'.
See the demo file demo_ge_groundoverlay for more details.
The above lines of code will display as follows when viewed in Google Earth:
