Hi

I have a list of waypoints for a flight routing (list in coordinates, or .kml points available).
I would like to make a routing out of that list - link all waypoint together to form a line on Google Earth, preferentially with a label name for the routing and label for each waypoint.

I am very grateful for any help you can provide!

Best regards,
chris

what you can do is to type (or copy-paste) those coordinates into the G Earth search panel, so they will show up on your screen, and then zoom in on each of them, and click. This way you will get the routing you're looking for. It would be nicer though to have a more elegant way of doing this, but I don't know how. Most likely you will get quite far using a html editor, as .kml files are extremely similar in structure to .html files (note that they both have ml in their extensions, for HyperText Markup Language and Keyhole Markup Language respectively).

Check this:

http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kml_tut.html
http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kmlreference.html

If you manage to copy/paste the coordinates of the waypoints into an kml editor somehow, you'd probably be able to do this more effectively. Maybe these pages will be of some help, alternatively google for a .kml editor.

This would be to make the routing.

Now regarding the labeling the waypoints, that would be easier: just type (or copy/paste) the coordinate, save as placemark and you can enter the name. Again, you may alternatively use a .kml editor for batch editing, but I don't know what would be faster.

Hope this helps!



I scratch my head, therefore I am.
