My name is Will Pittenger. I have been making KMZ sets for Google Earth for a long time. After I starting making those, I wanted overlays for my sets. I was unsatisfied with the accuracy of the images available at Wikimedia Commons. So I started making my own with Inkscape and uploading them. Then I needed a place for anyone that liked my KMZ sets and/or maps to find others. For a while, a simple blog sufficed. But, once I started getting requests, I knew I needed something better. This site is the result. You are welcome to set up an account. Some activities are for registered users only. Take your time poking around and let me know what you think.
I need your help there as I am a lousy artist. Make a proposal in SVG and export it to PNG 32-bit. Then go to Let's have an informal contest for a logo for this site and post your image in a reply. You won't be able to show the SVG, but you can show the PNG. If I like it, I will need the SVG locally if needed. Others are welcome to comment on each submission. I might even add a poll about it.
Every time I update the stuff I post into the Google Earth Community
Layer, I will add a post here. This blog will also get posts when I add
new stuff. I will add labels for each that describe the items. The
labels are shown in the sidebar. You can then ignore the labels you
don't want. Generally, there will be one post per KMZ changed or
uploaded. The footer has a list of KMZ files and the threads associated
Update 11-16-2008: The new site will also show my maps. Others may end up with their stuff on this site as well.
