[FYI, the correct address for this list is
DWH> I was excited when I saw your GeoQo "Cache Density Plot" overlay to
DWH> Google Earth.
Glad you liked them!
DWH> Since my application does not seem to be related to the use of
DWH> GeoQo as presented on the GeoQo Home Page, would it be possible for
DWH> you to help me get started by telling me where I could find
DWH> information as to how I might link my Excel Data to GeoQo to
DWH> display the information?
The easiest thing to do would probably be to convert the information to
to a loc format and load it into geoqo if you want to use it's GE
The easiest way, probably, to do that is export the data into a CSV
format that looks like this:
38.75705, -120.52890, A name for the point
38.55778, -121.67105, A name for this other point
(the names can be anything).
Then use gpsbabel to convert them to a .loc file:
gpsbabel -i csv -f INPUT_FILE.csv -o geo -F OUTPUT_FILE.loc
Then you should be able to get geoqo to load them:
geoqo -i OUTPUT_FILE.loc
And finally plot the results:
geoqo -s any: -e for_google_earth.kml
