View Geocaching Kml Also In Google Maps?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I wonder if it is possible to display the Geocaching.com-KML-File also in the browser-application Google Maps (maps.google.com), not only in Google Earth.

This would be very handy for if you are using a public computer such as in an internet cafe where you cannot install the Google Earth application first.

Or if you are using Linux (Google Earth does not run on Linux)

 

Is it possible somehow? If so, how can it be done?

 

Thanks,

yiek

Hi Raine,

 

I have seen this GoogleMaps integration that is shown on every GC-listing lately.

But as far as i can see it can only display one cache at a time. (or am I missing something?)

And adress search does noct seem to work (at least for adresses in Germany).

 

I'd like to have something that shows alle caches in an area as an overview map (like in Google Earth).

Is this possible somehow?

 

Thanks,

yiek

Click on the displayed cache icon and you will get the view shown by the last poster. Don't feel bad about not seeing this, I think it's neither intuitive or well labeled.

Ah, I just found out why it did not work for me...

For some reason this does not work in Firefox....IE works just fine!

 

Maybe Groundspeak can fix this so that it works in Firefox as well.

 

Thanks for your help. :-)
