Google Earth 5.2 now has a measurements tab for paths and polygons - 19 June 2010 - Will Pittenger's stuff for Google Earth and maps
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.

Google Earth 5.2 now has a measurements tab for paths and polygons
As a result, I am debating no longer be providing lengths for each item. However, I do want to provide summaries. How that will work out is unknown. Please note that GE 5.2 also provides profiles for paths, but not polygons. Length data inside maps will be unchanged, but using the GE length rather than the tool I used to use.
