Changing the markers on Google Earth to something in your data

Changing the markers on Google Earth to something in your data

Yesterday I introduced the capability to generate google maps and google earth applications straight from Excel.

Linkin Park Marker on Red Square from Google Earth

While creating an Earth version of the concerts/venues example I came across this rather nice rendering of Red Square. Since we can change the marker in google earth straight from our data, it plotted Linkin Park right there in front of the cathedral.

A single click on the marker brings up an information balloon and a double will now fly to the next location.

Take a look at the write up or download the workbook on the Excel Ramblings Site and give us feedback on our forum.
