Google Earth : an experiment September 18, 2005

Filed under: Pictures,Travelling — ambar @ 10:46 pm


We just played with Google Earth, the application that integrate with GPS data. The problem is we haven’t got the USB cable connector for e-Trex garmin GPS receiver. So Mark created this connector with 9pin to 4 teeth into GPS. We used GPSUtility 4.15.5 freeware. GPSU not allowed us to save file, so we input manually into Google Earth. The result was not too bad.

Those picture above taken from trekking in Mt Semeru Java. We held the data but simply didn’t work it out how to store it. Oh yes a good news is Google put altitude information on mountains or POI.

We can create path based on log data but we haven’t purchase the Google Earth Plus (US$30). So in meantime we just delighted what we’ve done.
