2005 worlds venue exact location ?

Post by awallin » 09 Aug 2005, 20:30

Just learned about a _stunning_ new application called google earth.
It is very much worth a try, go to earth.google.com and download the 10Mb package and install.

I find Brisbane and Mooloolaba quite easily, Mooloolaba at around
S 26deg 40min
E 153deg 07min

if anyone from australia has the time and energy to do the install and post the exact coordinates of the sailing venue that would be great ! :)

Anders

here is how it looks, combine this with something like mapquest and it would be a real killer app...

There is also the one from the NASA, called WorldWind...it's also FREE

http://worldwind.arc.nasa.gov/download.html

A bit heavy, big download, and the PC should be quiet recent.

System Requirements
* Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, or XP
* Intel Pentium 3, 1 GHz, or AMD Athlon or higher
* 256 MB of RAM
* 3D Graphics Card
o nVidia GeForce 2 Ultra
o ATI Radeon 7500
o Intel Extreme Graphics 2
* DSL / Cable connection or faster
* 2 GB of disk space

Here is the result:

Thanks Anders,
That looks great,
Ill get the exact location for you this weekend.
But if you look at the picture
go to the south of the shadow.
see the distinctly blue piece of water that is sort of shaped like an upside down L. We will be sailing of the Norther shore of that area. There will 3 different sailing areas for varying breeze directions with all facilities plum in the Middle

The links from Laurent don't show the sailing area and need to go a little further south

Got It
If you look towards the souhth see a long staright piece with a circle at the north end then move south to where you see an upside down l coming off the straight, thats it.
Conditions here today
comfortable 22c not much breeze we are right in the middle of a high (typical)
