Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

The new version of GE2KAP V21 is available for final testing. It includes the support for Landsat satellite images including the Help documentation.
Also it fixes a few problems including not creating KML/KMZ files instead of KAPs.

You can get it here:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

In V21.0.0.1 I mistakenly send my options file which is causing some users grief. . So I have uploaded a new version V21.0.0.8 BUT you will still have to correct some fields like the Crop Amount on the Options panel and Chart Location field on first panel. Get the new version at the Downloads page at Sample

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Paul, I'm assuming that if we didn't load 21.0.01 we won't have any problems with 21.0.0.8?

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Just released a new version of GE2KAP that now supports pansharpening of Landsat images. You can get it from the Downloads page of my website at GDAYII

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Here are two charts created from the Landsat 8 satellite images taken on 9th June, 2016 of a forest fire in Northern California

The first is using the natural color bands 432 and the second is using Bands 754 pansharpened with band 8.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Can also be useful for navigation. First image is of a reef in the natural color (bands 432) the second is using bands 236 which I call the Reef Highlighter.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

The testing of the quilting enhancement has come along nicely but would appreciate some more testers. You can get it at the link below. There is no Help yet for the new stuff just read the README_QUILT.txt for an explanation. If you test it let me know if you want to be informed of any updates. Here is the link:

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

Up to now I have been supporting eleven languages for GE2KAP but I only have real translators for three: French, Spanish and Turkish. I have used Google translate for the rest but I have been told that it has not done a very good job.

So in the next version I will only support four languages: French, Spanish, Turkish and of course English.
If there is anyone using language files for any other language please let me know and I will leave it in.

OK will you become the translator for Portuguese? I now longer will use Google translate. If you will be the translator I will send the Portuguese.mo file with the latest messages and you can translate them it and send it back to me. I will PM you my email if you agree.

Re: Google Earth to BSB / KAP

I just discovered that the last test version V22.0.0.13 creates inaccurate quilted charts they are badly off in latitude. So do not use them for navigation and don't throw any your old unquilted charts.
