    Question Synchronize ArcMap 10 and Google Earth via Python?

    Hello,

    Anyone know if it's possible to synchronize ArcMap & GE Desktop with something like an Add-In or maybe even a script written in Python? I recall using vb to accomplish this task back at version 9.3, but I'm not sure if it would work at version 10 or not. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    What do you mean by synchronize? Do you mean putting the data together in the same projection?

    Woops, I wasn't very clear at all in my first post. I want Google Earth to respond to pan/zoom events from ArcMap. Sometimes it's really convenient to have both ArcMap and GE synchronized on a dual monitor set-up.

    The trick is I'd really like to accomplish this in Python if possible. At first I had considered executing a python script with every pan event in arcmap and controlling GE via PyWin, but I'm back pedaling from that approach now. Any thoughts?

    There is an arc2google tool that I can't seem to get running smoothly. It would be nice to have it run straight through GE.

    Arc2Google works perfectly for me.

    Thanks for responding! Arc2Google is a pretty neat tool, but at the time I was looking for something to directly interact with Google Earth Desktop. Unfortunately, the only way I know of doing this is via COM, so I might wait until my organization upgrades to 10.1.

    Is there any script out there that lets you pan the extent of Google Earth into ArcMap? I'm using 10.1.
