Google Earth is an interesting tools in telecommunication field, especially RF engineering. We can see almost all the roads including small road in most of the city. In this sharing we will try to make a route on Google Earth and then export so we can open it on Mapinfo or drivetest software.
What we need:
- Internet connection
- Google Earth
Its very simple, all we have to do is create some path on Google Earth following the road that we want to include in the route, save it to KMZ and use the tools from Zonum to export into DXF. Then we will use Mapinfo to Import from DXF into TAB file.
This is the example when we create the routes on Google Earth:
