I have recently found the Land Matters site and installed it on Google Earth. It is easy to use and the sliding dimming bar makes it even better. The only drawback is to find out the actual location of a claim is to get a plat from the county where it was recorded. It does list that when you do a search.

How did you install Land Matters on Google Earth?

We are still in the 19th century when it comes to getting the actual location of a claim.   That has nothing to do with Land Matters.  At least many county records can be searched online.

Google Earth has a version of the Chrome browser available through the GE program. You can go anywhere the web will take you just like any other browser.

I prefer not to use the Chrome browser for security reasons but if you like using Chrome for your web surfing there is no reason not to use the Google Earth version.

Hi Jerry, I also have Earth Point on the regular Google Earth site where you have a topo overlay you can dim down to see both satellite and topo shaded over it so you can see both at the same time, but does not show claims like Land Matters.

This new LR2000 is really starting to get on my nerves.  Still can't find a darn thing with it.  Last two nights it seems to have been useless.

I USE "LAND MATTERS" ALL THE TIME. IT IS SLOW BUT WORKS WELL.  FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AND YOU CAN FIND EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW EXCEPT THE ACTUAL PLAT OF A CLAIM AND TO GET THAT YOU HAVE TO CONTACT THE COUNTY A CLAIM WAS FILED IN AND REQUEST A COPY. FEES WILL PROBABLY BE CHARGED.
