NAHERP Records and Google Earth

Post by Biker Dave » April 28th, 2018, 9:16 am

IS anyone else having trouble getting their records to load onto Google Earth when they open GE?

My records used to load automatically, now they don't.

I live out in the boonies and my internet is kind of slow, but this is ridiculous. After ten minutes of having GE open nothing is happening!

Does it rotate to the opposite side of the world, or just stay on the default location that the app opens to?

Have you tried rotating back around to the US to see if the records show up? Google Earth will orientate itself on the center of the points in the KML file, so if a coordinate is wrong (usually missing a minus sign), it centers itself on the opposite side of the world and not records appear to be visible. I don't see any of your records that look to be missing minus signs though. There are three that don't have coordinates, well, they are set to 0,0, so I don't know if that will throw it off.
