How to make the loops work in Google Earth:
Is Google Earth installed on your computer? If not it can be downloaded here.
Select a file above. When the a window pop up select the "open" button
Once the file loads into Google Earth the time slider will appear at the top of the window.
This is what it looks like in Google Earth 5.
This is what it looks like in Google Earth 4.
For the first time through select the options button, GE5 or GE4
Set the loop speed to the lowest speed and check the box to make Google Earth loop the animation.
As the loop moves forward you will see the images load. Once all the images have loaded you can adjust the loop speed to what you would like.
The loop for the 2000-2009 only appears to work in the Pro
version of Google Earth.
