Fred

on my Mac, when I migrated all my hard drive info. onto my new computer,

Google earth and all my info, came over intact. Do you have a back up drive of your main

hard drive? If so, you should be able to do the same… good luck.

Fred you could plug a USB drive in your old computer then go open up GE, go up to file and you should see all of you KZM files, then copy those to your USB Drive and copy then to your new PC.

Fred, also select all your waypoints (checkbox), then select file in upper left hand corner, then save as.

Google Maps lets you login on multiple devices.  I put in points and pins on my phone and I could see them in real time here on my laptop computer because I was signed in to the same account.  (Your points would be 'saved in the cloud' so to speak.)

I'm not 100% certain that GE works the same way because I have had one  hard drive crash and when I got on GE with the other computer many of my finds were not saved.  I'll have to look at a backup and do as Swegin and Steve have suggested.

Many people have done it Fred and as long as your old computer is working you won't lose the data.

      This is pretty neat stuff, and I think the applications for prospectors and relic hunters are obvious...

      The other day I pulled up Google Earth as usual but now the navigation and zoom controls and the tool bar icons are very tiny. And now my placemark labels are larger than normal. I cannot figure out how to reset it back.
      Has anyone else experienced this?

      Just wondering if there is any new information on LIDAR? Been wanting to use is to search forested areas. Here is a old link on the subject. http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/79-light-detection-and-ranging-lidar/?fromsearch=1

      There's a new site for research for us prospectors called Land Matters, it's Non-Profit Educational Organization website primarily for prospectors and other land users, this site was created by Brian Cole and Leigh Johnson, with much help from MinerDiggins Adventures, who many may know as Clay and Ruby, who have been for years been producing mapping and mining claims programs for prospectors.
       The site has been posted on other gold prospecting forums but I haven't seen it posted here, it's free to use, many many hours have been put into this site and more to come, there are many different maps and map layers (geology, land status, minerals, mining, topos, etc.), articles, resources, and a searchable library for 8 states at this time and more states are coming as requested by end users as well as the entire USA and other parts of the world, it takes a little time and work to add each state but several more states are in the works at the time I'm posting this and will be added in the order they have been requested by end users, if you have a request please request it at the website or I can relay it to them.
       As mentioned it a non-profit project created out of the passion of what we do and many, many hours have been put into it's creation which isn't finished by a long shot, but they do accept donations if you are so inclined.

      Recently came across Maprika a free mapping program, versions for PC, Iphone & android, but what seems impressive about it is the mapping database it has for US, lot of old US maps for the relic and coin hunter.
