A reason to get a GPS Receiver

Post by foxd »

I just hit the right combination of Google search parameters. Here is a list of the latitude and longitude of well over a hundred locations that Arundinaria gigantea is reported to be growing. Happy hunting!

The legal issues that will arise when the undead walk the earth are legion, and addressing them all is well beyond what could reasonably be accomplished in this brief Essay. Indeed, a complete treatment of the tax issues alone would require several volumes.

A bit of an update:

I was able to convert the coordinates into a file that can be loaded into a free program called EasyGPS. The file can then be downloaded into a GPS receiver.

Unfortunately, the nearest site on the list is 286 miles away from here. :(

A bit more of an update:

I have been able to take the coordinates and make a KML file which can be read by Google Earth. I will post a link when I can put it on a server.

I had to put the kml file in a zip file so it can be downloaded. The link is: http://129.79.74.96/foxd/bamboo/Cane-Sites.zip

Added Longitude and Latitude information to the display. The server is now configured to allow the download of KML files.

Foxd, I finally got around to installing the Google Earth plug-in and viewed your kml file. Very nice. Now I know where to go for vacation this summer. :wink: I'll be dragging the kids thru the forests of Appalachia and beyond.
