This plot is truly amazing. I’ve wondered if anyone had plotted it or I had
to go to one of Worsley’s books. I just reread Alexander’s description of the
journey and there were several days (several times) when there was total
overcast or they were just getting “beat-up”. Does the plot show they got to a
specified latitude and then tried to follow the latitude? The small plot
in “The Endurance” does not show them following a line of latitude.
They were very skilled .Of course, being skilled can sometimes also help
bring some favorable breaks or good fortune.
Most interesting and very well done!. Best regards.

Just open both files together in Google Earth;
File > Open in the menu. They'll appear in your "Temporary Places" (see
attached image). From there you can choose which data sets to display and which
not to by selecting individual items or directories. You can create your own
directorties under "My Places" and copy whatever data you are interested in. You
can inspect and/or edit the information associated with any item by right
clicking it in the "Places" panel to the right or in the display and then
selecting "Properties". It's all very standard and should be intuitive. I've
done the mind-numbing bit of entering the data. You now have huge power and
flexibility at your finger tips!
