RE: Google Earth Locating Parcels

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Google Earth is very inaccurate. It showed my home as being two blocks from where it actually is. You can put lat and long coordinates for a single point in GE but that is not what you want. You can get accurate lat and long data from http://www.geocode.com/index.php and clicking on Test Drive Eagle. When you use geographic coordinates GE is right on.

Subject: Google Earth Locating Parcels

 

Does anyone knows a practical way to locate Parcels of Land by inputting the four coordinates of the corners of the Parcel and then having Google Earth delineate the Parcel in the View ?????? Is there any interface out there that would take instead of the Address to do the Search, with the Four coordinates of the Parcel ?????? and then have Google Earth put the Corner Markers on the screen, similar to what is does now with the star locating the address ??????
