Ok, so why might you want this? Cause you can see what rivers are in the location of your next trip, cause you can get an idea of how secluded (ie. screwed) you are while on a river in case of emergency, you can get personalized directions from any location in the world to any put-in or take-out, and also to have the write-ups from A Wet State at your finger tips while using these other features.
What to Do:First off, if anyone doesn't have Google Earth, it is free to download at: http://earth.google.com . Just press the download button and it is yours.
Second, download the "WhitewwaterDatabase.kmz" file I made: click here (500kb) save and then unzip file. The file will be updated everytime I have a new run to add to it, so please check back from time to time. Also, this file cannot be distrubuted or duplicated without permission from Daniel Brasuell, © 2010. Last Update (2-4-10)
Third, open the "Rivers.kmz" file in Google Earth.
