Where on Google Earth News

This is just a reminder to everyone to help spread the news about Where on Google Earth. If you know friends who’d like to play, or frequent any forums where you think there might be interested people, let them know.

Also, I’m personally looking for help on my own Google Earth layer. In particular, I’m trying to figure out how I can easily format pins I’m using on my map. Most of the layers I have use nice looking layouts, and I haven’t figured out how to make a similar layout appear for each pin.

In addition, I think it would be cool to have a Where On Google Earth layer for Google Earth (only appropriate, isn’t it?) It would just be all the contest locations with one or two new pins added every week. If anyone would be interested in putting it together, I’ll gladly host it and put up a link.

Contest #57 Answer: Yangshan Island

This one was also pretty difficult. AGC has been throwing a lot of curve balls. The answer is Yangshan Island, just outside of Shanghai, China. The port of Yangshan is the largest container port in the world. Also visible is the Donghai Bridge, one of the longest bridges in the world, spanning 32.5km.
