San Jose street circuit KMZ - 13 November 2009 - 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.
Well, San Jose is finally done. Those that follow the sets that I do
know that I typically make a map for Commons and then make a corresponding KMZ set that includes the map as an overlay. Well, this
time, I included, not one, but two map overlays. One is specific to
2005. But in 2006, they swapped Pit Lane and the main straight. So that
was a second map.
I also included a lot of notes for things like turns (two sets), streets used, light rail crossings, and more.
