You can now better configure the lookat and camera position for the Earth maptype (when initially shown!). The parameter lookat is added (version => 2.12l). This parameter consists of 7 parameters seperate by a , (comma):

  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • Range - to set zoom
  • Tilt for lookat
  • Tilt for camera
  • Roll for camera
  • Flyspeed

See for explaination: Camera Control

For example setting the tilt for lookat:

{mosmap kml='http://gis.blueventures.org/images/kml/coastal_communes_poverty.kml'|width='100%'|height='620'|mapType='Earth'|centerlat='-22.4134'|centerlon='44.3342'|zoom='6'|lookat=',,,60'}
