Source Data

My KMZ map is created from the Hale Reservation map:
See version history below for more info.



This KMZ map is set to Draw Order 32 so it will show 'beneath' your primary map on your Garmin KMZ-compatible GPS.  It will also show below my KMZ map of the Noanet Woodlands and Powisset Farm if you have them loaded on your GPSr. Loading all three KMZ maps will provide you with a seamless trail map of all properties. See the links above to view all three maps together.

Note that due to the wide coverage area of this map, it is actually 20 tiles. Keep that in mind when placing this on your Garmin GPSr - even though this is one KMZ, the number of tiles is limited to 100 across all the KMZ files loaded on your GPS.

The images below are all from a Garmin GPSMAP 78sc. The image on the left in both rows is with no other maps displayed. The image on the right in both rows has the Garmin 24K NE series TOPO maps displayed.

Version History

Version 1.01 (6/30/2013)
Version 7 of Google Earth introduced a new 'feature' - when opening KMZ files, the view automatically 'tilts' to an oblique angle. By specifying the tilt angle (zero) in the KML file, this version of the Hale Reservation KMZ map (1.01) prevents Google Earth from tilting the view. There were no other changes to the map - so if you don't mind the tilt view in Google Earth, or if you are not using this KMZ file in Google Earth, there is no reason to download this update. 

Version 1.00 (6/2/2012)
Initial release using undated map downloaded from Hale Reservation website (see above) on June 2, 2012.
