This eliminates the need to order maps, wait for them to arrive and plot large numbers of intersecting lines to ensure that the scale matches correctly.

A real time saver and far more accurate. Google Earth is miraculous. Best of all, the basic package is free to all. All Hail Google!!!

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Guys you need to look at Scribble Maps... it is a white board that you call your maps into and you can draw on the maps and add text and color etc.... It is brilliant for making up your maps on search sites....  Great

The timeline feature is nice!!   There is a clock icon that you can slide a timeline back as far as Year's maps that google has on file.

Nice to see where you may have a little history in the area, but in the UK you have history everywhere!!!  Here in Houston, Tx we have to look a little harder to make the finds!!!!

I tend to use GE in conjunction with my handheld gps for prospecting. I mark locations where I make a find on the gps and then put those in GE with notations when I get home. I also add in any old mine tunnels or placer sites or artifact sites. When you look from above many times there is a fairly distinct pattern, and you can see places that look promising but are hidden from ground level. You can visualize where the vein runs across the landscape. Then I can take the coordinants from GE and make a track to follow with the gps right to my sites of interest. Before I started using a gps I would think I was in a particular area only to find out later I was somewhere else. Plus if you don't get back to a find for a few years it can refresh the memory. It's a great tool for planning and mapping as stated above.

DionHurst,

I am in South Africa, so our sites are also not as many as the US or the UK, but GEarth is such a powerful tool for helping in finding where people have been, that this probably the best tool for looking for the sites  Great Keep low in GEarth, and move slowly.... you will find places  Wise

Idaho Jones, I have to agree with you... I use GEarth also for marking my finds and for marking future sites  Idea I also use my Garmin and link to GEarth, it is so easy to use and of course you do not have to go and scroll through the globe trying to find where you was  Funny Funny

This site is excellent especially when preparing for a site as you can add text or draw boxes and change colors etc on the map.....
