ET, there is a very good chance that spider has enabled the Google Earth Community Layer, on many occasions, whilst compiling his collection of Big Ships.
Did you know that THIS POST by nlfuchs1990 is an accepted collection in the Transportation forum on the oGEC that dates back to 2012 ? (download the attached file and see for yourself the similarities )
Did you also know that the same nlfuchs1990 who created that collection has registered here on the nGEC as username " spiderx22 ", ?,
(yep, same person) and he has simply re-posted his own collection here on the nGEC under his new username.
In fact, spiders contribution here is OK and quite welcomed.
So, have you contacted the other 10 posters that placemarked the same Aircraft Carrier on the oGEC and asked them the same question ? (oh, BTW, there was actually one there that posted one year before the one you pointed out )
So please, what is your problem ? or do you now feel like it would be a good idea to edit your reply ?
Bryan, you've been given another chance here Mate, please don't go and screw it up by questioning and offending our members.
Yea, I changed usernames on this forum (forgot the password on my SpiderX22 username on the old forum ;p)
I was always bad at using the GEC layer icons, but tried to give credit for finds when I could. There's only so many places ships can be though, so if I'm finding the ships by myself, I'll credit myself.
New finds include: 2 x CSCL Globe-class (1312ft) MS Quantum of the Seas (1139ft) Q-Max LNG Tanker (1132ft) Disney Dream (1115ft) Disney Fantasy (1117ft) NYK Helios (1199ft) USS Carl Vinson [CVN 70] (1092ft) Q-Flex LNG Tanker (1033ft) Valemax (1185ft)
Speaking of cruise ships, I've added quite a lot recently. Went through all the cruise ports of the world and identified all the cruise ship finds I could. Two super useful websites I used: www.whatsinport.com/ has a map of exactly where the cruise terminal is within a location and ports.cruisett.com/ lists what ships went to what port when.
Version 4.2 (12.1.2016) •292 new ships, including • Pioneering Spirit (1565ft - world's largest construction vessel) • Harmony of the Seas (1188ft - world's largest cruise ship) • USS Saratoga, USS Ranger, and USS Constellation being scrapped • Project Edge 1 - Celebrity Cruises' newest cruise-ship •Added metric units
Thanks for your kind words syzygy and frankmcvey!!
Perhaps I was rash; I miss my hobby of finding these ships already xD I'll try to stick to my schedule of 2-3 updates a year, but wanted to push this update out first.
Version 5.0 (4.2.2018) -Divided ships into Navy Ships or Civilian Ships -Navy Ships category now includes anything above 656ft/200m, sorted by type -Aircraft Carrier, Amphibious Assault Ship/Transport Dock, Helicopter Carrier/Deck, Hospital Ship, Strategic Sealift Ship, Surface Combatant, and Tracking Ship -422 new ships (203 Navy/219 Civilian)
Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during this pandemic! I've certainly acquired a lot of free time during this...so here's an update. Not much in the way of imagery updates, but I cleaned up the historical imagery and kept only specifically id-ed ships, and identified a whole bunch of container ship classes.
7 months into this pandemic - still hope everyone is doing well! Lots of imagery updates, including a bunch of cruise ships being quarantined, but also two organizational changes: container ships are now sorted by ship classes and cruise ships by cruise company. Also, I can't believe that after 12 years of updating this collection that I never had imagery dates included before! I've added them now, which'll make updating and viewing much easier (in case of new imagery). This collection is now officially older than the students I teach: I feel old! This'll be my last update (for this collection) for awhile; next update probably in late Spring or Summer 2021. See y'all then!
Okay a bit of a retcon from before - I'm only adding dates to finds that I plan to keep - which is any named ship. Update a little earlier than anticipated, as I had some free time. Next update probably in late Fall or early Winter 2021. See y'all then!
Life's gotten a bit busier for me as I've grown older, so I'm changing the update schedule for this collection to once a year (Late Summer/Early Fall). Next update will be ~September 2022: see you then!
Version 7.2 (9.6.2021) • 154 new ships • +30 Bulk Carriers • +89 Container Ships • +7 Cruise Ships • +3 Lake Freighters • +13 LNG/LPG Carriers • +12 Tankers
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
