A few years ago, Frank Taylor made a cool pumpkin overlay for Google Earth. It’s still a fun toy to play with, so we’re showing it off again. To make it work, simply download the KML here and that’s it!
For maximum benefit, turn off the atmosphere (“View -> Atmosphere”) and the “Borders & Labels” (found in the “Layers” on the left side of your Google Earth window).
The pumpkin was created using a simple image overlay that he wrapped around the globe, then added a 3D model for the stem. You can read details on how that’s done in his post from last year.
If you want more, you can check out a bunch of Halloween goodness in the Google 3D Warehouse or maybe check out the “Pumpkin Man” in Google StreetView, found in the Disney Resort in Paris.
