    So was I Doug, my point was that some Google satelite images are years out of date, the ones of my place are at least 5 years old and you would not recocgnise it now from the google image.

    Hi Doug

    can you help me out,
    what coordinates did you use, I can't decipher the ones given on the site .. they don't make sense

    Are they: degrees, Minutes, Seconds , (which they look like) or Decimal Degrees ?

    N 37° 10.372
    W 8° 36 794

    Conversion utility here http://www.fcc.gov/mb/audio/bickel/DDDMMSS-decimal.html

    In the westerly the decimal point is missing, it goes in the Gap between the 35 and 794.

    If you are using google it will work ok but on another program you may need to change the format.

    Thanks,
    I tried that and it works.. kind of , but can't see anything that looks like a site .. tele atlas map date is 2011

    I reckon the coordinates are wrong.. they are a mix of deg/min/sec and decimal :Doh:

    I heard about this some time ago and have it on a Google Map, (below) but don't know where I got the co-ords from. They are close to each other.
