Based on Factors advice ...
I just downloaded Google Earth
(free). Took a couple of minutes to review the three guidance tools. Noted that image resolution was limited to viewing screen
resolution (a pay version offered higher resolution).
Navigated to Hope Town, Bahamas
, and used Google Earth's command
to save a JPEG image to the desktop
… but I could have saved it directly to a folder, etc.
A line at the bottom of the saved image includes the capture date of the Google
image, lat/long, elevation, and "eye altitude," which appears to be the altitude at which my image was saved by me. Really neat.
That said, a close-up image is "fuzzed", but a size I'd like for an overview of an anchorage/approach appears very sharp.
Lately, I've been lurking for the most part, but this topic stirred me to try Google Earth
with my Mac. Now I have something else for the Nav Toolbox. Thanks for the topic guys!
