Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

A Christmas present: Just uploaded GE2KAP V9.2.0

It has the following enhancements:

- KMZ support - it will read kmz files as well as KML files that have polygon and paths that you want to create charts for.

- Route/Track support - can read in a route or track and produce all the charts along it. The route/track can be in GPX format as produced by most navigation programs or in SRW/TRC format from SeaClear.


I have also updated the C2GPXKML program so that you can convert the kml files into GPX format so you can see how accurate the charts produced are in OpenCPN (or other programs that support GPX format).

Both can be downloaded at: www.gdayii.ca ....Downloads

Merry Christmas

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul..

Just created all the GE maps for the entire Kiel Canal from a manually created route.
At 2000 m it displays all in stunning detail using the quilting modus.

I have sailed through the Kiel Canal many times,both commercially on cargo ships as well as on my 'own keel' with my first charterboat m.y. Victoria Regina as well as on my beloved m.s. Eight Bells which I found and sailed home from Cuxhaven on the Elbe estuary. Many good memories from both Brunsbuttel and Holtenau.

Thank you for making it possible with a genius piece of software.

Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Tore

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

I just uploaded a new version of GE2KAP V9.2.1

This version has the the same functions as V9.2.0 but fixes a few minor bugs and also makes the default depth units "Unknown" so you don't have to enter the depth units every time.

You can get it at www.gdayii.ca ... Downloads

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

WOW! I have been away from the forum for a bit. GE2KAP has grown up and is an adult now!

I am going to have to dedicate some time today to catching up with this fine specimen of software ingeniousness!

Thanks Paul and Whitey!

Use GE2KAP to find offsets

Here's my posting on the OpenCPN forum about this subject:

Where are Offsets Stored ?

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Anybody happen to have the mobile phone number of Paul Higgins?
He has started his sailing holiday from Florida using the Globalstar SPOT Messenger but he keeps sending HELP messages to contact the Coastguard??

He is either in trouble or accidentally pressing the wrong button on his SPOT.
Anybody able to contact him before the Coastguard does?

Tore

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Tore .. I don't have a number for Paul but would be interested in his SPOT link. This is a bit of a worry, eh? Terry

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul is now close to Key West and has asked me to advice that GE2KAP is NOT compatible with OCPN v. 2.6. So,don't upgrade yet if you are planning to use it.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Tore,

GE2KAP works fine with OpenCPN V2.6

It does NOT work with Google Earth V6.2

Don't update to GE 6.2 until I figure out why.
