    Default Pulling GPS Coordinates from 'Drawing Coordinates' in Status Bar

    Hi there,

    I'm looking to write a script to pull the current cursor positions GPS coordinates, write them to a KML file, and then execute the file to have it open in Google Earth.

    I figure I can write most of what I want to do, but I don't know how to fetch the 'Drawing Coordinates' information from the Status Bar, or from whatever variable it is stored in. Does anyone know how I can access that info?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried the getpoint function?
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    The crude way "ID" pick a point, press F2 and copy from the command line x=1234.567 y=6789.456
    Open notepad and paste
    Edit to 1234.567,6789.456
    Copy and paste to Google
