Google Earth Images of French Polynesia 

*****Use at your own risk.  These GE chartlets are not a substitute for proper navigation.*****

 

                        >> Good fast internet is required to download these GE images<<<

 

The following links contain Google Earth images (chartlets.kap files) of French Polynesia.  You will need to have OpenCPN installed to be able to view them. They represent 100's of hours that I have spent creating these chartlets.  Some of the earlier images that I created have a small amount of GE text in them.   

 

There are some chartlets with clouds obscuring a portion of the area.  In many cases I have gone back thru the entire historical files for that location and picked off the best available.  

 

Directions

 

1.  If not already done so download and install OpenCPN

3.  In OpenCPN click on the tool wrench / charts / chart files   and point to the location of the saved chartlets  on your computer

 

4.  Click "Force Full DB rebuild"

 

5. Now go back to the chart view and you should see blue tabs on the bottom of the screen representing GE images.  The tab in Yellow is the navigation chart.  By clicking on either on you can jump back and forth between GE images and the chart.
