Norisring in Germany: Part 2 - 29 January 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.
Because this track is in Nuremberg, some people think thought it would be confused with the Nürburgring. So they used the city's previous name, Noris.
Note: Because this track winds around the place where Hitler gave many of his speeches and expected to watch tanks parading by, there are a lot of Nazi related placemarks in this area for those that are interested.
Done. Both the SVG and KMZ have been corrected. And I do check around for stuff like that. In face, if you would have joined me at the IRC channel I set up, ##automotive-racing at Freenode, I would probably have asked you.
You put pit road on the track and the main straight on the run off for the Schöller S. There's a semi permanent pit road available to the south of the main straight. This also means turn 1 and 2 are non existent. Could you ask for advice before you jump on a track in the future? Would be a lot less work for yourself if you realy want to do it right.
