Display QGIS data in Google Earth

GEarthView is an essential plugin that allows you to make a synchronized view of a Quantum GIS deployment on Google Earth.

How to install the plugin

To install it, select: Add-ons> Manage add-ons and search for it, as shown in the image.

Qgis google earth

Once the plugin is installed, it can be displayed in the toolbar.

How to synchronize the view in Google Earth

Once installed in plugin, if we want to show this deployment, the option "GEarthView" is selected. Google Earth must be installed, although it is not necessary that the execution be started.

Qgis google earth

As a result we will have the layer in the form of wms, in Google Eath.

The service is displayed as image, but with option to display data when clicking, as well as a wms.

It is interesting, that the deployment properties, such as transparency, layer order, etc., are gone.

  1. Greetings ... .install the plugins and everything perfect, however when I try to activate the view after opening the Google Earth, the Global Mapper opens that I have also installed on the PC ...

    Thank you

  2. Very good this post. Thanks to Roberto for the data of the Zope and Twisted bookstores. Could not install or run this plugin.

  3. Talking to the creator of the plugin, he sent me this email:

    1) QGIS view moves according to GoogleEarth view
    2) GoogleEarth view center coordinates (with Z!) Now displayed on QGIS status bas
    3) QGIS can place data points taken from GoogleEarth view center
    4) GoogleEarth display the quote Z of point at view center
    5) GoogleEarth and QGIS have a QrCode for each point saved

    What is the bad new? Only this: you need to install two new python libraries:

    Twisted
    Zope

  4. Hello, the plugins do not work, I get an error, it says that it is broken, I am working with the 2.4 version of QGis, installed in Windows 7 of 64 bits.
    What steps should I follow, something else needs to be installed and how do I do it?
    Thank you, Estela

  5. Thanks for the info.

    It seems like it should be installed:

    zope zope.interface-3.6.0-py2.7-win32
    ( https://pypi.python.org/pypi/zope.interface/3.6.0 )

    The first there's no problem, but the second, in the link there's only this files:

    Zope.interface-3.6.0-py2.4-win32.egg (md5)
    built on Windows-2003Server Python Egg 2.4

    Where's the 2.7 version?

  6. Hello,

    I released the new 2.0 of GEarthView plugin.
    These are the news:

    1) QGIS view moves according to GoogleEarth view
    2) GoogleEarth view center coordinates (with Z!) Now displayed on QGIS status bas
    3) QGIS can place data points taken from GoogleEarth view center
    4) GoogleEarth display the quote Z of point at view center
    5) GoogleEarth and QGIS have a QrCode for each point saved

    What is the bad new? Only this: you need to install two new python libraries:

    Twisted
    Zope

    But, it is simple to do, and advantages are many 🙂

    Regards

    Roberto

    PS: I like this post 🙂 Why do not update it about GEarthView 2?
