As some of you are probably aware, I have created a Google Earth placemark file containing over 1000 SAM site locations throughout the world, which is available on the frontpage of my blog site in the Recommended Downloads section.

The file can also be downloaded here: LINK

There is a thread regarding my file at the Google Earth forums, which can be found here: LINK

The only drawback to that forum is that because my collection was deemed worthy, it got moved to the moderated forum, necessitating moderator approval of any replies.

So, if anyone has any comments or corrections/additions dealing with my file, feel free to post them here, and bypass the wait time associated with posting at the other forum.

How did you go about adding the range rings to the KML? I am using an on-line tool but could do with an off line tool or some KML to cook.

I use a circle generator. The web-based format was discussed here:

There is a downloadable version that is also available which I have been using recently, available here:

How does Google maps on an iPod Touch work out where you are? I have an iPod touch and just got the upgrade so it has google maps. There is a locator function that can pinpoint where I am and shows it on the map. Since the Touch uses wireless not cell phone signal, how is it locating me?

Cell phones can use wifi signals to locate your position. My Android phone runs Google Maps, and it uses either GPS or wifi to locate you. Using wifi can usually get you a more accurate location as well.

The iPod might also have GPS, but I don't know about that since I have nothing iPod related myself.
