Distance and bearing in Google earth


Recommended Posts

I know that Google Earth has a distance function ("ruler"), but recently I saw a hack that also gives bearing from point to point but didn't bookmark it and can't locate it.

Anyone know it?


Hi Tom,

I dont think it is quite what you are looking for but at the bottom of this page is a kmz which puts a compass rose on google earth which can be used in conjunction with the Ruler path tool to give you a bearing.

For google maps (not earth) this site has a pretty good route planning tool.
