I have used jpeg images and Google Maps to plot geographical locations of my scenery add-ons in my posts. However, the result is far from expectation, not to mention a lot of time and efforts were spent on converting the data into appropriate Google Maps format and jpegs.
Starting from the Scenery – Switzerland Airports and Scenery – Caribbean Airports posts, a url of the corresponding Google Earth file will be provided in all Scenery posts (older posts will be updated gradually).
By adding the url to Google Earth via Network Link, not only the map-display result is matching of what I am having, the scenery data can also be updated automatically once the master file is revised.
Should no automatic update is required, the file can be saved and customized freely once added to Google Earth.
Adding the url to Google Earth is pretty simple:
1) Copy the url from the post
2) Click the Network Link in Google Earth
3) Paste the url in the space provided
4) Click OK and here go the map
