Use and applications with Google Earth / maps

What does PlexEarth 2.0 bring?

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post. Last year, in November, I made an assessment of PlexEarth Tools for AutoCAD version 1, which among its innovations includes the AutoCAD’s interaction with Google Earth. On this topic there are developments such as StitchMaps, KmLer, CounturingGE, kml2kml; in Plex’s case, in my […]

Google Maps improves its performance

Google has released a new beta version of its map browser, with quite interesting tools. In this case, to enable it, we must apply click the New! link placed on the right of the symbol of laboratory test, and activate the options. The warning is clear, what they are doing is only evidence, so that […]

Convert degrees / minutes / seconds to decimals

Some time ago I’ve been ask for this, and in view the friend seems a little rushed and today is a day to celebrate many things, here I leave one tool that allows you to move from degrees/minutes/seconds to decimals. Why a table It is common, finding coordinates that are in degrees- minutes- seconds format, […]

Comparative of booting with CAD/GIS programs

This is an exercise in equal conditions, to measure the time it takes to boot a program since the click on the icon until it is running. For comparison purposes, I used the one that starts in less time, and then a value that acts as an indication (rounded) of the times the quantity is […]

Your visitors on Google map

Knowing where visitors come and place them on the map is one of the functions provided by Google Analytics, but there is still no such functionality to display their own maps. The example represents my visitors today, with the drawback that there is no zoom, unless you want to view by country, and those annoying […]

Geoinformatics, latest edition 2009

This, in my opinion, is one of the better positioned magazines in the geospatial topic, it has closed 2009 with a masterful stamp; in its 7 editions kept a systematic review of free software and surveying equipment, in the latter (model 8, 2009) generalizes significant trends that are taking in the geospatial aspect and the […]

eGeomate: Predictions 2010: GIS Software

TRANSLATION NOTE: Please read the comments at the end of the post to clarify the real meaning of some terms. ——– A couple of days, at the warmth of a stick coffee (Spanish Idiom: “café de palo” a kind of coffee entirely prepared at home without any electrical artifact) made by my mother-in-law, we did […]

Interact in UTM with Google Earth

Plex.mark! is a development made on Google Earth ActiveX, that facilitates the operation directly in UTM, not just for getting coordinates but also to enter them. It’s free. Install Plex.mark! It must be downloaded from Plescape, the Greek manufacturer company of Plex.Earth tools; after it’s installed, it creates the shortcut on the desktop. To run […]

Connect AutoCAD Google Earth

A common desire to AutoCAD user is connecting to Google Earth, so as to be able to work on the image that toy has, but its accuracy is questionable, every day we find better material but it is useful rather than having nothing. Today we will see at least two alternatives to do so: A. […]

How to work on the boundary of two UTM zones

We often face the problem of working within the limits of the UTM zone, having a lot of problems (Spanish Idiom: “ver a palitos” to have a problem of difficult solving) because the coordinates do not work there. The reason of the problem Some time ago I explained how the UTM, coordinates operate, here I […]

Me, Cadastre and Google Earth

I have just returned from my trip, it has been lived between folk meals, the pressure of the qualifying rounds for the football world cup and work’s satisfactions; so, here I leave an extract from some unforgettable phrases of our daily job. The consultants: -¡Hurry Up! -dialog cleanup!The draftsmen: -Uff!!!  When will the paying be? […]

Allallsoft, a software to download maps from Google, Yahoo, VirtualEarth and OSM

Allallsoft has a number of applications that help to download images from the most popular on-line services for mapping. These programs have evolved compared to Google Image Donwnloader, software of which I spoke almost two years ago and that for a moment; it seemed to have stopped working. The basic difference between these programs and […]

Downloading Google Earth’s street maps

As far as we now, there is no program (not yet) that can download Google Earth’s streets in vector format. Although this task can be done using Open Street Maps; what a pity! it doesn’t exist all the cities in this software. But if someone is interested in Google Earth’s streets; the solution would be […]

Difference between images of Google Earth Pro and Google Earth free

There are many myths about it, since some who claim to see the female neighbor bronzing nude to those who find no difference between the versions. Let’s see if we speak from this topic with a couple of examples: 1. Yes, there is difference in resolution What happens is that the difference in resolution is […]

Google Earth improves the way to notice its upgrade

Every two months or so Google Earth has been updating its images, but the way of notifying has been only mentioning the country, the nearest city, and even a couple of times it said the upgrade in this regard: Look, we have updated images, but truly we don’t really remember where, so review on their […]

KML Manager, too much for 12 Euros

Small solutions always caught my attention; I think that if they don’t exceed $ 50 and solve what a great program doesn’t, they should be lucky. Today I want to show you KML Manager, a tool that just goes by 12.95 euros, it weighs less than 1 MB but let’s see what is within this […]

Touche Google Maps Extractor

A few years ago Google began mapping business; in that project Google was even paying $ 10 for every business to be georeferenced. Now they have a base that can be deployed both in Google Maps and Google Earth. Now imagine that there is an application that, with only giving a location and a radio […]

List of Software I reviewed

I spoke recently about what means in statistics to talk about software, specifically 11 programs which represents 50% of the visitors coming by keyword visits. It is difficult to give recommendations of which software is better, because it depends on the context (and the money) conditions, the more I can aspire is to write and […]
