I am also interested in knowing if there is a way of deleting a GE feature after being created. Thank you!!

I found these files to be extremely helpful. Especially GEcamera.m. I am attempting to place a Google Earth Active X object on a Matlab GUI and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with that. If someone could submit any sample code that deals with the GE Active X objects I would greatly appreciate it.

Very useful and well documented. Very straightforward to use. Is there a way to delete a GE feature once it has been created?

Thank you very much for this simple well documented project. It made it much easier than using the COM components directly. However, I faced some crashes in Google Earth. I don't know weather this was from GE itself or the matlab interface.
