Live WMS Data Inside Google Earth

Link – Adding WMS overlays to Google Earth

Chris posts some code to take WMS server output and overlay it inside Google Earth.

To give a bit of background on how the following code works, Google Earth has the ability to send the bounding box coordinates of your current view to a file, or webpage. Now, for those people whose light bulbs arent going off, this means it is quite easy to create a small bit of code to capture these bbox coordinates and transform them into a WMS request. The WMS output can then be overlaid quite accurately with GE’s sat imagery and tilted, zoomed to your hearts content.
