GE and Plotting/Navigation
I belong to a volunteer group that teaches boating safety and basic navigation.
I know in GE I can find a location using lat/lon coordinates. I can also draw a line in Nautical Miles to anywhere on the map. What I want to know is if there is a way to not only draw a line of certain length, but to also draw that line in a certain direction following a compass bearing?
For example: I start at location 28.22.00N, 082.50.00W. I want to draw a line 330 Degrees for 2 Nautical Miles. I can get the distance by using the ruler, but how can I get the bearing? I want to figure out the coordinates of the end of the line based on a heading and distance.
Heading is shown when you use the ruler tool in Google Earth 5.
Holy Cow, Batman
Thank you so much. I upgraded right away and that worked perfectly. I have to run navigation exercises on a nautical chart and this allows me to double check my work. How totally awesome. Thank you, thank you.
