    Default Google Earth Gurus help!

    I was creating a layer with the locations of field trial grounds. You can click on the next trial you have entered and get turn by turn directions to the trial grounds. I would like to be able to share this but I don't know how. Another idea I had was to have different colors or blinking locations for entries that close during the week. This software is fairly new to me and haven't any idea on how to continue.

    Wish I could help - Sounds like it's going to be great once you can share it!

    The EE events for field trials are marked with yellow and the EE hunt tests are being marked green and clubs that have both will be acombination of yellow and blue or bright green. I do need many Canada locations both field trial and hunt test with directions to the grounds.

    Yellow pins = field trial

    Chartruse pin = both Field trial and hunt test

    Orange pin AKC hunt tests

    Some of the grounds are used by several clubb, but the zoomed in view might show only one.

    Sheri there are some at several locations. When all is finished you will be able to rotate the earth for a better view of Alaska. What i really need is some people that live in Alaska or Canada to provide information about the events in their region. Also non-EE events.

    Just rotate the earth to view Alaska locations. The lower 48 are still visible.

    Will you be able to do a "flyover"? That is put the mouse pointed over a pin and see what event it is?
    That would be awsome!!

    Richard, are other people going to be able to use this, or is this something that you are doing for yourself?

    If others can use it, how are they going to access it? I use GE alot for hunting locations and training locations, just curious.
