Because of my interest on “Google Earth” technology, I have become a “Google Earth” fanatic, and any space-related event will trigger me to try to create an application for the event on Google Earth.

As a marathon runner, I have a lot of running friends that go abroad to participate marathon (or ultra- marathon) events around the world. Although I may not be able to join the event with them, I always like to make marathon application on Google Earth to share with them. Under current pace, I hope to create around 100 applications to share with everyone in a couple years.

In my early age, I used to be a pretty good mountain climber in Taiwan. As I become older, I can’t climb the mountain any more. However, I can create mountain applications on Google Earth to continue enjoying those wonderful memories in the mountains.

In addition to the interests I have highlighted above, I also like tourism. With Google Earth, I can create tour applications to travel around the world to “virtually” visit those places that I am not able to visit in person.

Since 2005 , starting to use Google Earth, my efforts result in over 100 applications.The majorities of these efforts and applications are original creations; However, it’s a pity that cannot share them with non-Chinese-speakers due to language barrier.In order to share my efforts and experiences with non-Chinese-speakers, I decide to build another blog with English version (http://en.gemvg.com).

In this blog, I will choose the essential part of my efforts from which I’d accumulated for 2 more years.At present, I am going to upload some yourtube file (or photos) and KML Collection for downloading.In the future, I will add introduction in English version.

enjoy it!

    hi,

    saw your fly over on youtube for the Taroko marathon – very nice! and i also checked out your copper canyon tour. i absolutely loved the book and having the track in front of me makes it indeed a lot more real. really well done.

    two friends of mine and myself we are planning to run the marathon this year and we are looking for any info on the route, elevation, etc.?

    cheers,
    bernhard

    Good jobs! I like it!
    I tried it with Taipei 101 (Latitude:25.033903,Longitude:121.564510), and I got this kmz file.
    This seems good, but maybe those fireworks’ altitudes are too low . In addition, with this fixed view angle, some fireworks can not see. Could I fix this situation? I ask myself, a few minutes later, I decided to do it. At first, I write a program to raise up the altitudes of all placemarks in the KML file by 500 meters, second, I write another program to make an orbit around Taipei 101, and mixed with the original kml tour.
    This kmz file is my work, as reference to everyone. I recommend Tim , maybe you can adjust your program to make it more perfect. Very thanks for your program again!
