I don't know if I really like this file because of this huge number of "structurally deficient" bridges.

Anyway, pretty funny was the circle without any pins in the middle of the GE screen. When you move the globe, always the center of the GE screen is without pins. And a little bit outside there is another circle of "highlighted" pins. Looks weird.

However, cool contribution

It took me awhile to find it, but that circle behavior is bizarre. I noticed it in the Northwest and Northeast, but not in the Southwest and Southeast.

You have to adjust altitude to get the "circle effect", the Northwest seems to show it best at about 2,000 KM altitude.

Ya, there still isn't really an easy way to put 70,000 placmarks into Google Earth. I think it does that circle thing because it has soem kind of limit as to how many placemarks can be displayed at once.

You should have seen it before I split it up into 5 regions.

Doesn't seem to work..

You are right. It doesn't work for me either.

I'll check on it. I think it should still be on my server.

Can you replace the file with the one attached? It got moved to a different server.

Got it Matt - thanks for the quick fix.
