    Hello

    I have tried to map my contacts on Google Earth.
    They map onto Google Earth but they do not match up with the destinations.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Also are there any other mapping programs out there.

    cheers

    Right. My home qth is now correct but the contact appear to be backwards ie German contact mapped in Ireland and as American contact logged in Russia.

    Google's algorithms (and databases aren't always 100% accurate--I used to be able to enter my address and it would appear nearly two klicks away from the physical address. All I could do was submit a report to Google with my correction(s) and wait--location errors usually get fixed, but it takes time.

    Are you using lat-longs? Are you mixing decimal degrees with degrees minutes and seconds?
