This morning I had some fun with an aerial photograph taken by a colleague here at Google. She shared one of her excellent photographs which depicts the coastline of Santa Cruz, CA as seen from the cockpit of a small plane. I placed the image as an overlay in Google Earth, but as this image was not of the landscape at a 0 degree tilt (i.e. looking straight down), I had tweak and stretch the image a bit to place it. Additionally, I used the Snapshot View command to capture an appropriate view point in Google Earth.
I posted this as a KML file so that everyone could take a look. Let me know what you think.
I was only somewhat successful, as the overlay is not an exact match to ground features. Notice the roads and some other features are not aligned. Anyone else want to open this file and edit the overlay yourself? It is tricky, but very fun!
