Many yachtsmen and navigation program providers are now making use of Google Earth in various ways as a navigation supplement.
Several open source programs are being developed and this thread is devoted to the task of managing GE to create useful harbour
approaches based on nautical maps overlaid GE displays. Inputs here are gratefully accepted by the developers working on your behalf.

Question 1. today is how to set up a CMD line to automatically start GE from a specific geographic location, i.e.: 45 30 12N,67 43 20W

Question 2. Can the GE images be adjusted for ilumination as many areas are very dark. The history command can sometimes help,
at least for the elimination of clouds obscuring the view.

GE when overlaid with a map often creates nasty black 'combs' in tiles.WHY?

FOUND IT!! Great little prog. to create KLM files taking you to your desired GE location: KLM Creator
