Google Earth is a virtual globe, map and geographical information program that can be freely downloaded via http://www.google.com/earth/index.html. The two files (NADUF.e.kml und Catchment.kmz) can be downloaded (Folder in ZIP-format) to the desktop and opened with Google Earth.
NADUF.e.kml: This file shows the position of the station. By clicking on a map-pin you get an information window with details of the station, river and catchment area:
mean discharge, river length
area, average altitude, average precipitation, average terrain slope, average terrain aspect, number of inhabitants, landuse, region, typ of landscape, geology, geotechnics
information to discharge, temperature and chemical parameters (arithmetical mean over the whole time of sample collection, interval and numbers of samples)
Catchment.kmz: This file generates the borders (lilac) of the according catchment area on the Google Eath globe. The choice is made in the left-hand window in "Temporary Places" under EZG.
The presentation of the catchment areas is consuming much processing power, therefor the presentation of several catchment areas at the same time might slow down Google Earth considerably.
Due to the reduction to only two dimension large catchment areas can not be presented without slight deformation.
Small catchment areas are visible only when zoomed into the corresponding region.
