Using Google Earth to create a .kml file?

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by Jeff Handley, Nov 18, 2009.

  1. Hello all. I hope someone can help me.
    I have google earth and I have located a track I wish to replicate for rfactor.
    The question is how do I go about capturing the needed data?

    Open Google Earth

    Go to Add: path
    When you are there you have a crosshairs as cursor when you put it above the map.

    You can make your track path with clicking along the road. When you are back at the start, don't click on the start node, leave a small space open. Then click on "OK"

    Go to File: save place. In the popup you select *.kml

    Go to BTB and select import. There you can import your track.

    It will be very bumpy at first. You have to smooth it up then.
