Prospectors Power Pack for Google Earth
This is an excellent addition to your Google Earth experience. Not to toot my own horn, but rather to protect my own original, copyrighted ideas and intellectual property I must state that this is an original creation by Rod Fitzhugh as of October 2008.
The Power Pack gives you the ability to look up active mining claims, closed mining claims, Township, Section and Range, get topo and aerial maps, and see BLM land areas with information provided directly through the BLM and GeoCommunicator. This is done through one of two custom files I have created. One file is a .kmz and the other a .kml. I sincerely hope you enjoy this addition to your Google Earth experience and I strongly encourage you to read this. Please feel free to contact me directly with any feedback, firstname.lastname@example.org The thumbnails below are clickable and as of 2-2010 more features have been added with additional screens which are not show here as follows:
Active Mining Claims by Township
Active Mining Claims by Section
Active Mining Claims by Quadrangle
Serial #s of Active Mining Claims
Active Plans and Notices
