Well considering the BLM disabled a lot of information when the Geo Communicator went bust for Mining (still has a lot of uses if you know how to work it) I let the Power Pack go. Over the last year I've had a lot of requests to bring it back but I can't get blood from a stone ;)

So here is the 2012 version, it has

Topo Maps
Aerial Photos
Township, Section and Range
Stream/Wash Layer
Road Layer
USGS Mineral Resource Data

Now I know some people have taken my original concept and made their own creations, I'm cool with that but as far as real time BLM data goes you just can't get it right now. AGP (this site) is still the home of the original...often imitated, never duplicated :)

Good map to help me along in my learning....... Is there a way to see behind or make the map transparent when i click on the "USGS Mineral Resources" and it covers the map up with a color that i can't see behind it at the regular aerial or topo map??

Joe, transparency is a feature of Google Earth not the power pack and how depends on the version of Google Earth you are using, its very easy. Take a look at the Google Earth help files, that's what they are there for...I believe in teaching a man to fish...Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for the rest of his life :)

Thanks Rod...... Just looking for a direction to go in and then i investigate it.
I go by the same values but not all want to go that route and want the easy way out.
I remember reading somewhere and i think it was your posting on this transparency subject but it should be easy enough to go into google earth help files
I have the latest version of google earth and will look into it.............. Thanks,
Joe

Rod took a bit looking around but it was actually right in front of my face all the time: On the left hand side there's a search magnifying glass and just to the right of it is a square box and when you hover over it it says "Adjust Opacity" ..... a simple click on that and it did exactly what i need to see the background map...... now to make that fish dinner LOL
thanks,
Joe

I have a good friend that lives in Texas now but he Lived up there in Alaska for many years and owned four planes up there and talks about it all the time. His name is Bob C. (I don't want to put his last name out there on the forum without his permission)

Joe,
Approximately one in every fifty Alaskan's is a pilot. We have very few roads in a state twice the size of Texas. Most of the towns in Alaska, even our capitol, are not connected by roads but every little town and village has an airport. When there's not an airport we land on beaches and gravel bars. That's why I consider my airplane a prospecting tool.

Alaska sounds like a beautiful place..... my friend tells me he would go out into places with the plane and not see other people for weeks and he would just hunt and fish.He told me that once you go to Alaska it will spoil you. We (wife and myself) need to get up there someday.
Enjoy :)
Joe
