May, 2015 General Meeting:   Jim Allen shares Google Earth Information for locating claims:

Jim has provided us with link to Google Earth:   The download link for GoogleEarth:


Attached is a “zip” file with a bunch of useful layers that Jim showed at the May 2015 General Meeting.


A note should be added that the Caltopo layers need to be clicked on and allowed to zoom out and open before you move to your desired location otherwise they won’t show up.

Also a note should be made that if a layer doesn’t seem to be working or updating in a timely fashion that they can right click on the layer name in the My Places tab and click “Refresh” to force it to refresh now.
