Any of the files that you view on the maps at http://2-epic.com/maps/311map.html can also be viewed in Google Earth. To grab a file, note the link address. The filename is sandwiched between the “?” and “&” symbols, so the data file for the 311 map at http://2-epic.com/maps/311map.html?dixie311-2010.kml&index=0 is dixie311-2010.kml, and that file resides in the http://2-epic.com/maps/ folder. To access the file, put it all together for http://2-epic.com/maps/dixie311-2010.kml and do a right click/save link as or save the ugly looking text file your browser dumped at you as file with a .kml extenstion and open in Google Earth. Simple, eh?
There is so much you can do with Google Earth – it’s connected to most everything. If you have the ability it’s worth the small effort.
On the flip side, if you can point to a .kml file or a .gpx file on the web, you can load in the map by constructing a URL for it. For example, here is a link to the map loaded with the CTR file from http://www.bikepacking.net/routes/colorado-trail/ loaded: http://2-epic.com/maps/311map.html?map=http://www.climbingdreams.net/ctr/CTR2008.gpx&index=1
This might be useful for the last few holdouts that don’t have Google Earth or TopoFusion, but be forewarned – tracks may be simplified so that your browser doesn’t grind your machine to a halt.
