Yes I have done that. You must download the Google Earth program first (its
free). Open deedmapper, save file as KML. Open Google Earth click on file,
click open , find your KML file, click and it magically appears. On the
version I have the plats are displayed in a timeline, that is you must
advance the pointer and the plats appear in the chronological order of their
patent/deed date. It took me awhile to discover this little quirk and I
originally thought all the plats didn't load. I wish they would all appear
at once, if anyone knows how to do this please advise.

Subject: [DMU] KML files
I have read, with interest, archived messages on this forum relating
to procedures for overlaying DeedMapper plots on top of a
topographical map. These range from the fairly simple -- printing a
transparency of the same scale as the underlying map -- to more exotic
procedures which involve scaling downloaded topo maps to the same size
as the DeedMapper plot.
I have seen no discussion of exporting a plot or plots as a kml file
for use with Google Earth. Has anyone used this procedure? (See
DeedMapper 4.0 Help/Contents/Exporting your work/KML format).
