why doesn't this forum use it as a working link so no matter what computer we are on, it will
work? Why download it on our computers? I was on a hiking forum that used google earth and I could hit it and go wherever I wanted to.

So? Can we get it here as a working link?
it would only enhance the site in my opinion.

I'll shoot an email.

reason being, I'm using my son's laptop and he doesn't want it downloaded since he would never use it.

It would be a great tool at CT think? Possible?

Totally off topic, but somebody in here has to know this. Is there anyway to turn off or get rid of the hundreds of blue squares that start to appear as I start to zoom in. they are names with small pictures attached to them, and all they do is clutter the overhead view.

Thanks in advance.

Are you perhaps confusing Google Earth with Google Maps?

-There is a limit to the amount of KML that can be rendered in Google Maps and there are just too many great KML resources out there to ignore.
-The 3D Google Earth plug-in for Google Maps is almost as large as GE itself.
-I frequently use GE where I don't have an internet connection but so long as the imagery is cached for my area of interest then everything works.
-etc

Never use it? INCONCEIVABLE!



I agree it would be nice if CT had some geospatially aware functionality.

This is a very early, (can I repeat that) very early model of mapitfirst - Google Maps.
poke around and give us some feedback. We're still struggling with the volume of data on some older browsers. There's lots for us yet to do in terms of functionality (route profiles, trip planning an such)and the aestethics needs some work. Regardless, let me know what you think.
