Wrong GPS location displayed in GoogleEarth
Posted: Mon Jan 11, 2010 9:48 pm
I found a problem with the GPS tools. The exemple is a picture from the centrum of Celle in Germany.
With GeoHack and GoogleMaps i got a good map:
But with GoogleEarth the place under the pin is about 80 kms in the south !!!
Of course it's the same with others pictures.
For the GPS tools I suggest some features found in GeoSetter working under Windows: create geographic coordonnates and places names in IPTC keywords with the help of a Google map .

Strange for me it's good. On windows?

It's no problem with the Google map you display in your GPS tab. With an other picture from Goslar everything is allright.
The problem is with the data you send to GoogleEarth when I use "Open location in GoogleEarth" in the Tools menu. As you see the pin on GoogleEarth is 104 kms in the south.

If i try with the picture that you have sent to me, google earth show me "Celle" like geohack...
Do you use windows?

On my signature I said I use Linux Ubuntu.
But if I open under Windows XP and I select the Celle picture:
-in your GPS tab I get a good map
-in the Tools menu the item "Open GPS location in Google Earth..." is deasabled (for GeoHack it's enable)
I have not this problem with Ubuntu.

I re-install Google Earth and stop/start XnViewMP. Same problem on Windows XP (item "Open GPS location in Google Earth..." is disabled)

The problem is not xnview, it's a google earth problem (more precisely, it's a bug from the medibuntu version).
For fix this, you need to add this line in the beginning of the google earth executable, a line after "#!/bin/bash"
(gksu gedit /usr/bin/googleearth)

You are right Herman
I apologize to didn't give how to solve this problem after some exchanges with Xnview.
But a better way is to use : "LC_NUMERIC=en_US.UTF-8 googleearth YourFile.kml" in the command line.
So GoogleEarth is still in your system locale, but the numbers match the US format.
