  • Grave yards, GPS, and Google Earth.

    I've always been fascinated with cemeteries. The reverence and respect we pay our departed as well as the history that can be learned through geneologic records are interesting fields of study.

    I spent Wednesday afternoon at a local Cemetery with my digital camera and my GPS. I sync'd the time on my camera with the time on the GPS so I would know where I was when each picture was taken based on the waypoint time.

    A GPS waypoint was set at each grave site. Once home, I dumped everything into Google Earth and using programming code called Keyhole Markup Language I turned it into a pretty neat presentation.

    If you're interested, download this file and open with Google Earth.

      Click on each pushpin. It will bring up a picture of the marker at that location.

        Do I need a plug in for this to work? All I got was some crazy text filling the page.
