Street racing in Townsville, Australia--New KMZ file - 3 July 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.
Street racing in Townsville, Australia--New KMZ file
The resolution here isn't all that great, but it was possible to make a
map. I am unsure about some details that don't show up in the existing
GE imagery. Worse: The Street View images are even older and don't show
the track at all. Still, I might not have been able to do this track
without GE having caught it in race configuration.
I included an
overlay, polygons for each of the two configurations, turn placemarks,
and a path for pit road. You can get the KMZ set here.
