    Wouldn't be hard. Just use Google Earth for the images. Make a transparent jpg with circles that overlap the ones on the image and then overlay that on the Google images.

    Not that I could do that, you understand. I know the mechanics of wind surfing, but...

    Well the circles are labeled with how far they were form the center so that makes the scale easy.

    I actually typed my last message before I saw yours. You wouldn't need to extract it using photoshop. If there's a scale on google earth you could use just about any drawing program to draw the circles to the right sizes and go from there. Now that I think of it google maps has a distance measuring tool that would let you construct a scale. Google Earth may even have tools for drawing circles I don't tend to use it all that often.

    See, that's why I need a seven year old.

    One who goes back to his mother when I don't need him, of course.

    I remember that a few years ago a navy veteran showed me a copy of a book, the original held in a museum in Japan, of photographs of the results of the bombings. He had been sent a copy as he had submitted photographs to the project which were included in the book.

    He seemed to think the original of the book was held in a museum located in the one surviving building in the center of the bombed area. Some time ago now and the book was in Japanese so unable to pass on the title.

    I am sure some of our better informed members will know of this and if possible where to see a copy.
