Google Earth 3D Action Levels

Report Name: Google Earth 3D Action Levels (example)

File Name: EarthSoft.Interfaces.Google.dll

Dependencies: saved Analytical Results user report

Software: EQuIS Professional

Source: EQuIS Professional install

Language: English

Output Type: Keyhole Markup Language (*.kmz)1,2,3


Description: This report compares the results of a saved Analytical Results report to user selected action level(s), and exports the content as a *.kmz. When viewed in Google Earth, the concentrations of each parameter will be displayed as a 3D cylinder for a location and colored based on the action level. Prior to using this report, please review the Submission of Content Warning for Google Earth reports as well as the commercial license requirements.


Installation Instructions: This report assembly is part of the EQuIS Professional installation. No additional installation steps are necessary.

Report Output

The report output for this report is a *.kmz file that that is viewed in Google Earth.


The output of the report shows concentrations of each chemical represented as a vertical cylinder at each location. The height of the cylinder represents the amount of concentration (taller cylinders show greater amount of chemical). The color of the cylinder is determined by the selected action level:


RED: Indicates that the concentration exceeds the action level (DT_ACTION_LEVEL_PARAMETER.ACTION_LEVEL) for that chemical.

YELLOW: Indicates that the concentration exceeds the warning level (DT_ACTION_LEVEL_PARAMETER.WARNING_LEVEL) for that chemical, but does not exceed the action level.

GREEN: Indicates that the concentration is below the warning level (or below the action level if the warning level is NULL) for that chemical.
