Anybody use Maps2bgl?

Recommended Posts

I just read about and downloaded from the Avsim library the Maps2bgl program that allows you to import images from Google Earth or Virtual Earth, which then allows you to create photo-realistic scenery areas in FS9. Has anybody used this program, what were the results and how difficult was it to work out?Kim

Thanks Opa. I should've done the search before posting the question. I hadn't remembered reading about this nice little program before the other day, so I was thinking that it was something new. Being busy trying to get the outside house work done before winter has kept me from reading the board regularly. I'll keep the link for my reference when I try to use the program. It looks fantastic and there are good resolution pictures of my city and surrounding area on Google Earth!Kim

Hi,Keep in mind that Google Earth considers this a breach of their Terms of Use and you can be cut off from the service (theoretically).Hope this helps,--Tom GibsonCal Classic Propliner Page: http://www.calclassic.comFreeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.comDrop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
