Google Earth Custom Icon Editor

The Shape2Earth icon editor for creating KML files has been greatly enhanced recently. Users now have an interface that is very similar to the one they use in Google Earth, and the ability to add their own custom icons to point data.

New icon selection window pulls icons from the Google Earth folder

Custom icons can be added to the pallete

Custom icons will stay in the icon window for later use

Shape2Earth icons can be changed when the user 'hovers' over an icon in Google Earth
