A Transportation Collections Index ploppy 3/7/10 6:47 AM
Here is a list of Transportation collections.

There are 46 collections in the list along with a couple of notable World Record flying achievements.
Valery35s “Transportation. Assembling” and Frank_McVeys “Aircraft Identification and Information Resources” 
posts, have also been included.

Some of the aircraft are duplicated in the Military forums ***The Collection List***
as the aircraft have both a civilian and military background.

Something else I have added is this request by Hill.
Please label your finds as accurately as possible.

A great Index to some collections. I'll take MM's comments and make this sticky.

Cheers

MM and TheLedge

Thank you very much.

It is a list of collections that focus mainly on global locations rather than cities and countries.
There are many, many more excellent collections that do focus on cities and countries but this list would be a lot, longer if I include all of them as well.
I am still looking for new collections to add, so if there are any global collections you think should be included, please PM me with a link to the post.

Thank you once again and all the best

Hello Ploppy, I was wondering If you could add the collection I maintain, "Google Earth's Biggest Ship Collection"?  It's goal is to be an up-to-date collection of all ships currently visible in Google Earth that exceed 950 feet in length (I've also added some ships [ships over 1150ft or of particular interest] visible in Timeslider).  As there are thousands and thousands of ships visible in Google Earth I wanted to focus on a certain subset, and I chose the largest of these ships.  I've made it so all length measurements are in both Metric and American units to make it easily understood by everyone.  It's sorted into categories by ship type (Tanker/Bulk Carrier, Container Ship, Cruise Ship/Liner, Aircraft Carrier, Under Construction/Drydocked, LNG/LPG Tanker, Vehicle Cargo Ship, and Lake Freighter) and ship length (950-999ft, 1000-1099ft, 1100-1199ft, 1200-1299ft, 1300+ft)  Currently most finds within it are my own, but I welcome anyone adding any ships they find.

Hi nlfuchs1990,
 
I am currently updating The Collection List, in the Military Forum and The Transportation Collections Index, here.
I will certainly add your post to this collection.
 
You have obviously spent a great deal of time compiling it.
 
All the best

The  funicular railway collection is hardly a collection. Just five placemarks, none of the suggestions have been incorporated, and the last post was 2007!!

Congratulations ploppy, and thanks for your hard work.  This month this collection was included in the "Top content" section of the Google Earth Sightseer newsletter (April 2012). Those wishing to subscribe to the Sightseer can do so here

Hey Ploppy,
Was wondering if you could please replace

All Aircraft in Flight "Street View"

Aircraft In Flight "Street View"
By mnj1233

with

Streetview in Flight
https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/gec-transportation/iZVBdfv2g30

The previous one is incredibly outdated whilst the newer one is the one I've been working on (and will keep up to date - It's a network link so it'll always be up to date with my newest version).  It currently contains 706 airplanes (638 civilian, 68 military), 103 helicopters (69 civilian, 34 military), and 22 aerostats (831 total). 

Thank you very much,

Nicolas Fuchs (SpiderX22)

Hi There

Users cannot Delete another Users post or collection.

It is up to the compiler of the collection  to remove / edit as he or she wishes.

Many of the Finds within the Collection are still Valid finds and are still viewable in Google Earth Street View.


Re: A Transportation Collections Index ploppy 7/12/12 2:25 PM
Hi Nicolas
 
Yes I can add your collection.
I will incorporate it, along with mnj1233s.
He was the first person to find a use for "Street View" in Google Earth, so I will not delete his collection.
As there are military aircraft in your collection, I would like to add it to the list in the military forum, if that is OK.
 
All the best

Link sends you back to this thread, rather than the one you intended.  You probably intended this one: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/gec-places/2d0FApRzs6M    Don't bother though, that network link is broken (has been for awhile).


I would suggest you remove both blocks of text, however NormB said "Users cannot Delete another Users post or collection," so.....idk.
Re: A Transportation Collections Index ploppy 6/24/13 1:46 PM
Hi nlfuchs1990,

I have deleted the cruise liner link and updated Transportation. Assembling.

All the best,

Ploppy
