Google Earth Sample

The following link is to download a high resolution offline Google Earth file from near the village of Amoul in Chad which shows examples of explosive hazards in the desert. Indicators such as; a vehicle accident, blast craters and bones from an animal accident in a confirmed hazardous area (CHA).

The file can be downloaded from here. Note the large 107mb file size. After downloading the file, unzip and double click the .kmz file for it to open in Google Earth.

In order to zoom at the maximum amount, “Do not automatically tilt when zooming” needs to be checked in the Navigation options in Google Earth. A screen grab from the PC version is displayed below.
