This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile17962/NYC-Subway.htm>NYC Subway</a></b><br><br>NYC MTA subway routes and stations for Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn. For the most part I used the stations I found on here (GEH) with some corrections and additions. This should correspond to the March 2006 system map.<br />

I used the add path feature from GE Plus. In fact that's about the only feature that I use from Plus.

So I can't do it with the free version?

Hi there,

you can also do it manually if you want, without using GE Plus (if you are so inclined). Here's an example of the code:


<Placemark>
<name>Name of placemark</name>
<Style>
<Icon></Icon> <!-- this is to have no icon appear in My Places; you can have an icon if you want, though -->
<LineStyle>
<color>ff9464e6</color>
<width>2</width> <!-- width is between 1 and 4; I think that default is 1 -->
</LineStyle>
</Style>
<LineString>
<coordinates>
-99.07459573625876,19.41631373692428,0
-99.08210248638399,19.41174458021144,0
-99.09037309925735,19.41646679932027,0
</coordinates>
</LineString>
</Placemark>

Easy enough, once you understand what's going on. You can get your coordinates from your other placemarks.

Ciao!

Thanks Richard :)

Where should I put the code though?

You need to edit your file in a text editor (Notepad or Word).

Here's a quick tutorial to get you started:
