    Question Searching with Grid references

    Hello,

    I have a nice long list of Grid references that I would like to mark out on Google Earth, but it doesn't seem to accept a Grid reference as a search criteria.

    Is there a relatively simple way of getting round this?

    I'm using the mac version, if that has any significance.

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    There are a couple of ways to do this, the easiest IMO is XLS to KMZ. Link is attached. I use it for real estate locations. I entered them into MS Excel and converted to KMZ using the program shown.

    My mind works better in sentences with spaces and long paragraphs loose me sometimes cause I need to picture what is going on at the same time I am reading.
