AUV in Google Earth- Trackline animation

Here is a screen capture showing a snapshot of a timeline view
animation of a Gavia 3D model running along a mission path in Google
Earth. The location is Pavillion Lake and the data is from a 2007
mission that Alex provided. The size and complexity of the model
occasionally causes flickers in GE. The path is a series of 2D points
in space colored to a scalar attribute (could be temp or depth or
anything else). The model follows the path based on the positioning
information along with heading, pitch, and roll.

Still much more work to be done but a nice early step in the right
