PhotoIntoHVE is a standalone program that helps HVE users import aerial images, such as those from GoogleEarth into the HVE environment editor.  The program allows the user to select the image file, set the scale of the image file based on some known distance within the image, and set the origin and positive X-axis direction for use within HVE.  The program then generates a 2-dimensional plane with the dimension and orientation specified by the user and saves it as an HVE scene geometry file (*.h3d).  Once inside of HVE the aerial image is mapped onto the 2D plane and the user can then operate his or her simulations directly over the aerial image.
