Google earth advice

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me how to do the downloadable links for google earth like the ones you can download to look at your old camps etc? :oops:
  2. Basically mate, you have to add a place mark over where you want to view. Give it a name, etc etc. Once the place mark is there, hover your mouse over it and right click it. You will be given a list of options, on of which is "Save As". Click Save As, give the file a name and store it anywhere you like. And there you have a .kmz file, which will take anyone who opens it to the placemark on google earth.
  3. Have a look in the pane down the left side of the main window, and see if you can enable the overlay that is called Layers ----- Google Earth Community ------ Military

    The ---- mean you need to go down a layer.
  4. Right got that sorted, what site do you upload them to now?
  5. bump :frustrated: need to know were you can upload the KZM file to
  6. Anywhere you like Bretta, as an example you can upload them to the forums by adding them as an attachment as below, or email them to people etc.

  7. Right I'm I being a thick cnut tried uploading it to the gallery section on here will only let me post gifs/jpegs and the like :shakefist:
  8. You cannot upload it to the gallery as it is not an Image - think of the KMZ file as a shortcut to your own icons stored safely away at Google Maps!!

    As boney said, you can email the file to whoever you want, or you can post it into any forum topic by "Attaching" it to your post (see the "Add an Attachment" button at the bottom of the post when you click "reply")

    Note that you don't get the option to attach a file if you are using Quick Reply!

    If you need any help attaching the file to a post, let me know.

  9. right sorted ....right under my fecking nose!!! thanks all I was looking in the top tool bar for the attachment
