    Google Earth Tool for drawing range rings.

    Hey guys/gals;

    HERE is a tool called Range Rings which is a free add-on to Google Earth to draw concentric circles around any point to easily indicate distances.

    I use Google Earth to do a lot of flight planning. I use it to find distances and landmarks etc. For me this little app is a nifty tool I use to visualize how far I can go on any given setup I have.

    Have at it!

    Ah thanks! I've been thinking they should have that.

    I wish they had it so that the measurement tool would just pull out a circle, oh well.

    Exactly! You'd think having "circle" as an option beside "line" and "path" wouldn't be so bad.

    I have been manually measuring out and lines and connecting the ends for circles all this time. Thanks wow!!!
