New Google Earth Released

4 posts in this topic

I'm not sure what forum to post this, many of us use Google Earth though so here it is, the new version which I just saw released.

Kinda let down personally... Cloud storage of my KMZ's...not going to ever happen with me. Also, looks like they eliminated most of the actual useful tools from the desktop version, bummer.

There does appear to be some previously unreleased high res imagery in at least some locations anyways though so that's cool.

Haven't really had time to look through it a lot yet, maybe I'm missing something new that is actually useful, dunno.

Some one recommended Google Earth Pro to me a few years ago. Used to cost $399/year. It is now free and may have the tools you require. Current version is 7.1. You can tell if you got the pro version as the icon  of the earth is gray.


Just want to say I am enjoying your videos!

As we say in the IT Audit/Infosec space "Cloud..... someone else's computer"

Agree 100% G

      So now that I have a Rino, what's the best way to put claim maps on it? Or do i need to use some of the online map sites and plug my own lat/longs into a custom route? I downloaded the base camp app and have watch the tutorials, its just gonna take a while to build surrounding claims and such by hand.

      Hi guys,
      Thought I would share this new app I have been using while out in the field on my android tablet.
      I find the satellite imagery awfully slow to scroll and refresh on ozi explorer android, so got this one for general navigation as it is much faster loading.  It works offline and has helpfull options to easily select and store wanted areas at various resolutions.
      The waypoint options are nicely laid out and include lots of customization.
      At $3.99 for the ad free version its even priced right!

      When I and a friend try to lock on and co-ordinate the same feature on google earth our co-ordinates do not match. The variation is off about 3 minutes. Our computer settings for google earth are exactly the same but I`m not sure if we are running the same version. Any ideas?

      I started checking more into a mention of XP DEUS Version 4 updates, especially this badly translated information from a French website:

      So I started Googling and there is a Facebook page for the app at
      Right now it is mainly just a finds recording and track mapping app much like the Minelab XChange system, but phone based. One photo really caught my eye however. It apparently can use the phone location services plus orientation features in combination with the app to superimpose past finds onto a view of the terrain. The prospecting applications for this alone are obvious.

      After my pretty much blowing them off last year XP is really getting my interest now.

      We all talk about gold and fault lines BUT how do you go about finding these fault lines exactly? 
      They are not shown on Topo maps that I know of. What maps should I be looking to acquire?
      What do they look like in person? Sharply uplifted rock areas I am guessing?
