View Full Version : How do you make this GE Icon

09-14-2005, 06:21 AM
This is probably going to be a dumb question with a simple answer but darned if I can find the solution.

In "My Places" I have blue folder icons, yellow placemarks, etc. This is normal.

I also have one other directory?/file? with a blue and white globe (looks like a marble). This is the same as the "My Places" icon.

How does one create this icon? It doesn't exist in the table of icons.

Thanks for any help.

How does one create this icon?Hi,

if you open a *.GPX file or import coordinates from a GPSR you will get this icon :cool:
For testing just open this file in GE: http://mac-im-netz.de/dateien/keyhole/Buracas2005.gpx

Thanks macnetz,

Yes, that works, but I have a file that I created with numerous subfolders and all of a suden it now has this icon, but there is no GPS/GPX data in there - just placemarks and overlays and text descriptions.

There must be other ways of creating it - mine just showed up when I saved the folder one time.
