Google Earth Placemarks

With all this high tech internet stuff these days, i thought it might be a good idea for us to share a few good spots for fishing around WA.


It doesnt have to be your secret spot, but if its something you wouldnt mind sharing (and what you may catch there) feel free to post them up.


(just gotta figure how to do it!)

Easy to do

Just go into google earth, find your spot, go to edit, copy, then copy image. Go to an image program, goto edit, paste as new image and save and you will have your google map. EG, X marks the spot. ;P By the way, this is no special spot, if you head west and put lines out you have a chance. :)

Great Link

Very interesting link Jay, I might try and do this within the site, then can link the boat launching ramps information page into the map, along with generalised fishing information. This could be very good indeed!

Google Earth uses Simple

DATUM: Google Earth uses Simple Cylindrical projection with a WGS84 datum for its imagery base. So if you set your GPS to that you'll be fine. WGS84 is peretty standard here in oz so it should be set to that already.

In google earth click Tools then Options...  there is a box where you can choose which type of lat/long format.
