Battle KML Time Animations For Google Earth

Professor Peter Guth of the US Naval Academy, author of the first-rate terrain analysis and GIS program MicroDEM, writes to let me know that the final projects of one of his classes are available online. Among the projects are KML files for a number of historic battles, including time animations for Antietam, the Battle Of The Bulge, and Dien Bien Phu. These combine both actual historical situation maps as image overlays, and placemarks for unit positions:

While you can click the “Play” button on the time animation control, I find it easier to follow the animation by manually moving the time slider over from left to right to follow the progress of the battle.

    I see the animation for Antietam, but don’t see one on the Fredericksburg map.
