Inspired by the GEB fireworks generator, I tried it with Taipei 101 (Latitude:25.033903,Longitude:121.564510), and I got this result.
This seems good, but maybe those fireworks’ altitudes are too low . In addition, with the fixed view angle, some fireworks was blocked. So I decided to write a program to raise up the altitudes of all placemarks in the KML file by +500 meters, and I wrote 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.
With this view surrounding method, How to show something in this cylindrical space surrounded area? Various possibilities sprout in my mind. Followed by the Chinese spring festival just around the corner, I had the idea! I thought I could make numerous couplets fall down from heaven, I collected more than 100 couplets as icon database, Accompanied with the “happy lunar year” music, I made the “couplets generator”.
You can play the tour in the downloaded KML to see the couplets. Or, you can download the kmz file and get the location directly in Google Earth.
Now that I can fall down the couplets, I think the Taiwan Sky Lantern Festival, there are thousands of sky lanterns floating in the sky, compared with the former, they are different direction, So I have to modify the program and get two sky lantern icons, and set the timestamp, andaccompanied with another “happy chinese festival” music and make the “sky lanterns generator”.
Also You can play the tour in the downloaded KML to see the sky lanterns fly up. Or, you can download the kmz file and get the location directly in Google Earth.
