Flying your Route in Google Earth

Post by jfheath »

I've been using this feature for a while, but it was always a lot more complicated than this - or I was doing it wrong.
I've not seen any other documentation on it and I mentioned it to someone in another thread - so I hope this is useful.

Basically - create a route in basecamp.
Save the route or track as a KML file.
Load it into Google Earth
Automatically fly along your route through a 3D Landscape.

I've only done this with a PC. I assume something similar is possible with a Mac.

That's how I do it now that the direct link between BaseCamp and Google Earth is broken.
