View 2D databases

Once you publish a 2D database, you can view it from Google Earth Enterprise Server or in any browser. You can also interact with map layers you created in a 2D database using the geeCreateFusionMap class of Google Maps API v3 for GEE.


To view your map database from Google Earth Enterprise Server:

  1. Log in to the Admin console of Google Earth Enterprise Server.

    The Admin console opens to the Databases page.

  2. Check the box next to the map database that you want to view.
  3. Click Preview.

    A new browser tab opens displaying your map database.

To view your map database in any browser:

  1. Launch any web browser.
  2. Point your browser to:


    where myserver.mydomainname is the host name or IP address of your server to which you published the map database, and publish_point is the publish point that you specified when the published the map database. For example: http://my_host_name/mysanfranciscomap

    If you are not sure which server you published to, contact your Google Earth Enterprise Server administrator for help.
  3. The map database displays in your browser.

Using the Google Maps API

The Fusion Maps API is used to create and interact with map layers created in Google Earth Enterprise. The API is based on the Google Maps API but includes an additional geeCreateFusionMap class that makes it easier to interact with map layers generated by Google Earth Enterprise.
