I'd like to share code that uses spatial R and Google Earth for terrain analyses. In this example I took SRTM data at 1" resolution from http://www.viewfinderpanoramas.org/dem3.html#alps, read it into R, did a little processing, and finally wrapped it up in a KML-file that I use as ground-overlay in Google Earth. In fact I eventually converted it into a sqlitedb with MAPC2MAPC for usage on a mobile device.

See the code here on github..
