Where Are We On Google Earth
« on: August 21, 2010, 10:03:28 pm »
I just downloaded, installed and play around with Google Earth 5 http://earth.google.com/. My fren recommended me last time but i never really have time for it. I can see some of the benefits/applications for it. For example:

1) Finding shortest route to a safe place in case of any unlikely event occuring
2) Find where the possibility of National Treasure
3) Plan on where we want on vacation in the future
4) Global mass destruction etc
5) Finding where our frens are

So i'm thinking and wondering where are my EEVBlog frens are located and scattered around the world. Since i'm in the edge of jungle here, i would appreciate if the fellow frens here could locate themselves. My location is Latitude 4°26'38.56"N, Longitude 118°37'0.80"E. Thats the best i can get, if anybody can suggest better way of expressing the location, Thank you.

FYI: I will add your location to my Google Earth so i can see how far and scattered we are.
Thanx for your support. Cheers ;)

and hope nobody is going to drop a Nuke on me!

Yeap, a little walking. ;)

You can start a public map online on Google Maps with our situations and share it.

When I get time later I'll go through and make a . . . thingy (don't know what they're called) with everyone on it.

Thanx guys. Now i can see something. Using the ruler tool, DJPhil is about 1308 miles away from Time (in picture, i've added the text, coz Google earth didnt show it when we look from the moon), and migsantiago is not so far down below. An hour ago i'm checking among the famous countries in our local news such as Israel, Iran, Iraq. i can see roughly how they live there and the population managed. Now i can have the world at my fingertip!

You can do it interactively on maps.google.com. Create a custom map.

I wonder if there is a Wordpress or SMF app that allows users to plot their location?

I've added a map button to the main page sidebar (under "Follow EEVblog"). It shows the locations of all visitors in the last 24 hours.
Nice!

Cool.

But, either it has me misplaced by 40 miles, or it skipped me and there is someone on here from Scottsdale Arizona.

Is there?
I'm either at my bench, here, or on PokerStars.

I lived with my Uncle near where that Scottsdale pin is at before moving to Edmond, Oklahoma in '97. It appears to be a little off on my location too.

I believe it's based on your IP address, and that would be where your ISP is I guess.
I shows me as being in Tasmania!
But that's not surprising given that my company is/was a Tasmanian company and still has an office there.

Even if every pin there is off by a couple hundred miles, it's still a pretty darn impressive span for your little blog.  :)

Brilliant! It's got me pretty much bang on.

This is neat!
