Wild or not wild?

Wow! This is a great project and it should have it's own website, not be hidden here on a topic on HU!!!

I want to contribute to this list so during this year I will gather as much info from Romania as I can.

I have a question: are these places for wild camping or there are real camp grounds there? (sorry If I missed the answer to this one)

There is something new!

U.S. National Parks - Wildlife-Parks-Asia - World-Heritage

Desert-Info.ch - Camping-NP-WH-Embassy.zip, Google-Earth-KML + GPX - ZIP, 6963 KB ------------------------>

The new files are there only as a Google Earth KML. This leaves, in contrast to GPX, which is visible in Google Earth filed additional information.



If you want to convert the files anyway, for MapSource or whatever, I recommend

GPSBabel 1.3.7 Beta

the "Swiss Army knife" for format converters.

Further Informations:

World Wildlive Adventures Asia

UNESCO World Heritage Centre

Have fun with it.

Ulrich

Thumbs up

Hi Ulrich,

Fantastic effort. Just a small fly in the ointment: as I have pointed out some time ago, you have taken *all* my waypoints and converted them to campsites, including lakes, guesthouses and others. I invite you to download a new copy from my website. Perhaps you can even put my comments into the kml file, that would be great.

Meanwhile, I'll try to post an example of what it could look like into this topic: http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...327#post297790

What do you think of this: MapAList - Laos ? The data sits in a GoogleDocs spreadsheet and I will create a form so people can add to it. It's just an experiment at this stage.
