    Alright, I updated the EXE, and compiled it with RELEASE mode instead of DEBUG mode... the result is an EXE 1/3 the size (good for my server ) and hopefully you won't need those ugly .NET dlls anymore... however if you do... tell me which ones you need and I will zip them up in a file along with the EXE for download. The files location has not changed...

    Also, added resolution as a user input (used to be static of 1/4 mile). Now you can enter in any number of 10ths of a mile for resolution.

    Yeah, it works with GE4 beta and GE3. Did you set the network link to the output KML file? As far as the hour glass... once you kick off the app, it won't respond to any inputs (since it's already running). I'm in the process of adding a pause button, and moving the algorithm into a stoppable/restartable thread. If you start the program and want to stop it, just hit the close "x" button on the app, and kill the program for now. If you have GE set up correctly with the network link, it should work. Let me know if you're still having issues.

    Added the algo into a thread, so it doesn't lock up anymore while running. Will be adding more features soon.

    TYVM! For testing I have been grabbing data for the state of Rhode Island:

    Lat: 42 deg 2 min 0 sec North
    Lon: 72 deg 0 min 0 sec West
    Miles East: 45 miles
    Miles South: 55 miles
    Range: 1250 meters
    Speed Factor: 4 (This really depends on your resolution AND net connection)
    Resolution: 5

    Next updates in the works include a progress bar, the ability to restart with new values without closing the app, and Greater Circle Algorithm implementation, with XML file reading for reading in trips in addition to grids.

    Hmm, it appears that last update broke something! It's not going south now, so I'll figure that out and post an update.

    Nate

    Edit - Actally, what is happening is instead of ending like it used to after completing the grid, it starts over again. This may actually be useful for some folks, so I'll leave it until I update it with the newest features.

    It would be very nice from you if you publish the source code. This way anyone could learn how the app works and improve it.

    I intend to do this, but I need to make some modifications to it before for legal reasons (nothing major, just reused a small amount of proprietary code and I'd need to rewrite it to publish).

    Afterwards, I'll put it under CVS at sourceforge.
