Requirements

simplekml

pandas

Google Earth (Pro)

install:

from the upper link

Install

You can install to use pip:

sudo pip install googleearthplot

Usages

This library generates a kml file for plot as below.

First of all, import the lib:

from googleearthplot.googleearchplot import googleearthplot

The import code depends on the script path which use googleearchplot.

Point plot

A point plot is created like this:

#Plot point
lon=18.333868#degree
lat=-34.038274#degree
gep9=googleearthplot()
gep9.PlotPoints(lat,lon,"point")
gep9.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample9.kml")

Then, you can see

pointchart.png

 

Of course, you can plot mutipul points.

# Plot point chart
gep10 = googleearthplot()
lat = [ -77.6192, -77.6195, -77.6198, -77.6208, -77.6216]
lon = [43.1725, 43.1728, 43.173, 43.1725, 43.1719, 43.1719]
for (ilat,ilon) in zip(lat,lon):
    gep10.PlotPoints(ilat, ilon, "point")
gep10.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample10.kml")

A bar plot

You can plot a bar chart like:

#A bar plot 
gep1=googleearthplot()
lat=18.333868#degree
lon=-34.038274#degree
num=100 #bar height size
size=1  #meter
name="barsample"
color="red"
gep1.PlotBarChart(lat,lon,num,size,name,color);
gep1.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample1.kml")

If you click the generated kml file,

you can see the plot on Google Earth.

The addLabel flag is on,

PlotBarChart(lat,lon,num,size,name,color,addLabel=True)

you can add labels on the plot

Bar plots from csv data

You can plot bar charts from a csv file like:

#bar plot from csv
gep=googleearthplot()
gep.PlotBarChartsFromCSV("barchartsampledata.csv")
gep.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample2.kml")

you can see plots when you click the generated kml file.

The CSV file format should be like the sample file:

Line plot

You can plot a line chart:

#Plot line chart
gep2=googleearthplot()
lat=[-77.6192,-77.6192,-77.6195,-77.6198,-77.6208,-77.6216,-77.6216,-77.6216]
lon=[43.1725,43.1725,43.1728,43.173,43.1725,43.1719,43.1719,43.1719,43.1719]
gep2.PlotLineChart(lat, lon, name="trajectory",color="pink")
gep2.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample3.kml")

Then, you can see:

Line plot with height

You can plot a line chart with height data:

#Plot line chart with height
gep3=googleearthplot()
lat=[-77.6192,-77.6192,-77.6195,-77.6198,-77.6208,-77.6216]
lon=[43.1725,43.1725,43.1728,43.173,43.1725,43.1719,43.1719]
height=[10,40,60,80,100,120,140]
gep3.PlotLineChart(lat, lon, heightList=height, name="trajectory2",color="aqua")
gep3.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample4.kml")

you can see:

linechartwithheightsample.png

Line plot from csv file

You can plot the line chart from a csv file:

#line plot from csv file
gep4=googleearthplot()
gep4.PlotLineChartFromCSV("sampledata/lineplotsampledata.csv", name="trajectory3", color="gold", width=10)
gep4.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample5.kml")

you can get the image:

linechartfromcsv.png

Check the csv file format

Line plot with height from csv file

You can plot the line chart with height from a csv file:

#line plot from csv file with height
gep5=googleearthplot()
gep5.PlotLineChartFromCSV("sampledata/lineplotsampledata2.csv", name="trajectory4", color="orange", width=10)
gep5.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample6.kml")

you can get:

linecharwithheightsample2.png

see the csv sample file

lineplotsampledata2.csv

Plot Overlay Image

You can plot a overlay image (logo, etc.)

#Plot overlay image sample
gep8=googleearthplot()
gep8.PlotOverlayImg("img/samplelogo.png",200,300,name="logo")
gep8.GenerateKMLFile(filepath="sample8.kml")

This is a sample screenshot:
