This does not work - the terrain ovelay is just a black image - what happened to the old overlays that worked

Hi Phil I am getting the same result - although sometimes when I start Map overlays I manage to get one or two tiles of terrain to load. Hopefully this is a bug that the adminstrator will solve shortly

I did have some time to fix things so it works again now.

Hello guys,

I tried using this on Google Earth and wanted to save an image with the best resolution possible of the roads but when I try it says that Google Earth is trying to save the image and doesn't go more than 0%. So my question is can I still save an image using this overlays?

Is there a reason I can't see my polygons once I load the street map? I need my overlay on top of the street map but can't seem to get it to show through.

Martin Loetzsch (2014-06-04 14:50:47):

yes there is. Please have a look at http://ge-map-overlays.appspot...

works but you have to cache the overlay first

Fuck you and your adblock message. I'll block ads on this site if I want, and I can disable your div message to. Hah!
