Unsatisfied with a dearth of town & area maps for the Bahia de los Angeles, I’ve made my own. Like lazy water, I took the path of least resistance and did it all in Google Earth. Please let me know if I’ve made any mistakes in the file, and I will correct them. I’ve exported the info and published it here:

Google Earth kmz map of Bahia de los Angeles, Baja Mexico
or Google Earth KML map of Bahia de los Angeles, Baja Mexico

It seems to kill a lot of birds with one stone, but I have a nagging concern. I don’t like tying information to one particular software system. Graphics or text can be easily read and parsed by all kinds of software and users. A Google Earth kmz file… Not so much. This will be my test. Is this information useful to anyone? Can anyone even find it?

Update: Well it seems that KMZ isn’t the best way to distribute, so I’ve unzipped the file to KML. That way it is easy to import into a lot of applications. Google has updated Google Maps to display KML files, so now you don’t even need Google Earth: Google Map of Bahia de los Angeles, Baja Mexico

  2. Great map! This is exactly what I’ve been searching the internet for.
    I’ve been desperately searching the net for more information on the town. If you ever get a chance to add more town pictures, that’d be a bonus, but it’s great info.

  3. Hi Greg, good to hear it is useful! I’ve been meaning to add photos, but I’m behind on too many projects to count :)
