Post Viewing places on Google Earth
If a trn is assigned to an area on Google Earth that is shown in a summer like setting, and that session is done in winter, would that session show the google earth image in summer, or as the viewer would see it if he was on site in winter?

Greetings Norbert,

My feeling is that it would give you the season appearing on Google Earth if you are pointing to it with TRNs and a line. In this case, it would be acting like a picture cue.

To get around this, you could tag it with a TRN [e.g. 1234/5678], and then write a paper-based cue, e.g. "[3567/4960]Target [1234/5678]/now" which would give you the present instant.

Note: some people are comfortable with a pointing line and then writing [1234/5678]/now, but personally, I don't like this. I've tested the first method and it works.

You could also write a word cue:
[1234/5678]<GPS coordinates>/now

Hope this helps,

Hey Norbert,

Hope you and your dad are well.

So... the Google Earth dynamic with RV gets complicated. It depends what your end goal is.

Nobodysfuel's advice will help you target, as the printed photo will lock it in.

I recommend you reach out to "Demo" on this forum.
