Overlay WA geo data in google earth

Post by Guest on Fri 31 Aug 2012, 2:13 pm

Hi all,

Bit of a random stab in the dark this one. I use google earth a fair bit as i am sure we all do. Now I was just wondering if anyone had come across kmz files for the WA geo maps. This creates a transparent representation of the geo map data overlayed the google earth imagery. Works well and puts everything in one place.

I am getting tempted to buy GIS software to convert existing WA geo maps into a google earth layer but would be nice if it was already done as it would save me money and more importantly a hell of a lot of time lol.

Cheers,

sam

8-10 years old, go to the flicks in Ringwood on Satdee arvo.On the way home call in to the local pommy fish n chip shop and get a zack's worth of chips and a piece of freshly battered flake for a deena. All wrapped up in grease-proof paper and the Herald. Bloody big queue in that shop I tell ya.
Used to get paid for bringing them rolled up newspaper.

They really were the good ol' days

Those maps i got from David in the form of a kml but they have since been deleted, can anyone tell me where i can get some more maps from and are they 1:100000 or 1:125000

Hi All,

We need help.

When travelling across tenements we want to use software and our GPS that denotes where we are, what tenement we are on etc..

We have GeoMap installed and all the relevant maps but what software and screen device do we buy which will give us this information whilst prospecting for gold. Do we use an IPad or just our Laptop PC? Do we have to buy Explorer software?

We would appreciate any assistance from members that can advise on the best way to approach this and any recommendations on software and/or screen to use.

Cheers

Bob & Joan

Free Mosaics are available on the Dept of Minerals & Petroleum website.

You can get KMZ Google Earth Overlay files from the DMP Data and Software Page
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

1:500 000 Interpreted Bedrock Geology Download Google Earth KMZ zip.exe File (20 mb)
(This file self extracts to few files including a Geology Mozaic file and a Fault Line structure file in your download folder)

Double Click either downloaded KML file and they will start up Google Earth and put a link in the 'Temporary Places' menu. You then can tick check them either on/off. Click and save to 'My Places' to keep.

Do the same with
Tenements - Current (Live and Pending) Download Google Eath KMZ zip.exe File (12mb)
and you get current pending in Blue and Granted in green mosaics on Google Earth

Do the same with
Mines, deposits and prospects (MINEDEX)
and you get every mine exploration in WA (BUT uncheck lables and everything else but 'Precious Metals' so all thats left is GOLD MINE Locations yellow triangles (clicking mines or the tenements will give more info too)...

Now you can overlay to your heart content, showing where gold has been found in current Pending or Granted Mosaics with Geo Faultlines or just on Geo Bedrock mosaics just like the Pro's!

Hi All,

I worked it out, so here goes:

We need a geo map that has the borders trimmed off to fit onto google the reason being as each map is put onto google they would overlap, so we need a trimmed map

To get this go to the main page of this forum and go to geo map downloads(top rh corner) and selct a map(they are all named ie Cue, laverton etc) and then select the pixel size ie:125(middle one) and the map will come up, click on map to get either small or large copy, i went to the small copy, now we have to copy this and put it into my pictures on your computer.

Each digital camera we have has its own photo shop icon on the front page of my computer, double coick on this and go to my pictures and double click on the map. The list of things you can do to the picture is on the rhs and go to trim, using the pointers and dots trim the borders off the map and the save back into my pictures, preferably into its own folder and name it and also put the coords of the relevant corners of the map as well

Google Earth has a tutorial on how to download your map once it is retrimmed to size..follow this and there it is!!!

Ron

PS:Just noticed a photo editor at the top of the main page of the forum, so you could crop the maps in there!
