I've been using Paul's GERoute for several days now, and it's really turned into something useful. I tried a bunch of the other GE tools (GEVoyager, etc) with no joy.

GERoute works great - I use OpenCPN to define routes and export them as gpx files. GERoute reads them in and walks through them. The method Paul uses to define areas to zoom in on (making points in the route close together) works fine. Sometimes you get more zooming than you expect, but that's ok. And it does not seem to skip places either, even when waypoints are a long way apart.

I've spent a few hours creating gpx routes that track the entire coastline of WA, Puget Sound, the San Juan and Gulf Islands up to about Nanimo, and run it all through GERoute - now I have about 1.8GB of GE cache for that area. I tested it by copying to another laptop, and it works! Very cool!

Next stop, Alaska :-)

Thanks Paul!!

Thanks for all the testing you did for me afmstm.

I just did all of the coastline of Cuba. I created 10 route files from SeaClear and scanned them all at once. Takes above 30 minutes to do them all.

kiper204,

Well it is done and tested by a few users. So if you want to try it email me and ask for GERoute:

phiggins()gmn-usa.com (change the () to you know what)

I was thinking that it would be nice if we could share the route files that we produce. For instance afmstm has created a route for the "entire coastline of WA, Puget Sound, the San Juan and Gulf Islands up to about Nanimo" and I've created routes for the entire coastline of Cuba. If you wanted to build your GE cache for those areas, you would just have to run them with GERoute.

Some software (ahem) will create .KML files directly. These can contains points, lines (routes) and areas. It is an XML specified by Google so Google Earth reads and displays .KML directly. If your software exports other formats, like GPX, then GPS Babel GPSBabel: convert, upload, download data from GPS and Map programs can maybe help.

I have added zipped routes as downloads on my website for the following areas. Belize, Cuba, Guatemala, Florida_Atlantic, Florida_keys, Guatemala and Mexico_Carribbean. You can use these with the GeRoute Utility to prime the Google earth cache so you can use Google earth offline.

If you have any other sets of routes for any areas that you would like to share, please send them to me (see my website for my email address).

My website is: www.gdayii.ca

Re: Google Earth: Unplugged

Hello,

Can GEROUTE scan for exemple 1nm on right and left following the route to have a bigger area in cache ?

What I want to do is o have the ICW offline from Cape Canaveral to Charleston to avoid sand shore in the ICW in Georgia for exemple.

Thanks

Not sure if this was mentioned before, but worth looking

Re: Google Earth: Unplugged

You could set the normal height for GERoute high enough to see 1nm on either side.

Yes of course I can do that but there will be not enough details. I just to have near my route 1nm in 300m high. Do you know how to proceed.
