Everything You Wanted to Know About Thailand

This is an example of using Placemarks very effectively to show a variety of different types of locations. Someone named "Toko" at the Google Earth Community Forums has been posting an evolving collection of hundreds of placemarks showing the roads, hotels, restaurants, airports, parks, and other points of interests in the country of Thailand. You can download it here .

Over 6000 people have downloaded what is now up to version 6.5 of his placemarks. He takes feedback from people who point out missing or incorrect placemarks, and updates accordingly. Many of the placemarks have detailed descriptions including photos and links to web sites. He has also linked to over 50 webcams (mostly in Bangkok). Some of the web cams even allow remote control for 30 seconds or so. An amazing collection Toko...great job!

(Interestingly, Toko had added placemarks related to the miitary, but recently removed it. Maybe Stefan should write about this as yet another example of intelligence paranoia.)
