Thread: Google Earth

  1. #1

    Google Earth

    I stalk in a large conifer block so it isn't easy to know whats behind the wall of trees, if you have a good look at google earth you can find things that are not visible from the ground and with a lot less effort. The picture shows a route through the trees which cannot be seen from the ride but provides an easy approach to a glade which would take 1/2 a mile to get to round the outside if keeping downwind.

    Google Earth is great, I use it to track deer movements.

    However the lack of regular updates means that its not really all that much of a practical tool when dealing with changing environments such as crops and woodlands unfortunatley

    The forestry block I stalk in the borders is about 2000 acres and the day google photographed it was obviously cloudy as most of the forest is white and fluffy the funny thing is that I can't find those bits while I am stalking.

    Email them. I emailed about the borders being cloud covered and they updated some of it after a few weeks, give them a location and they might just do it

    What do you do about the bits that have turned into clear fell while Google wasn't looking?

    If you upgrade you can get real time thermal images of where the deer are on your ground.

    Surely you're joking! Could you imagine the numpties with their noses buried in their PDA, proclaiming to anyone in earshot, 'There's deer here!'
