Let me know because that is really great work. I like you have a crosshair and two GPS formats, as well. A real treasure there amigo!
PS, I moved about 18 miles from my old but there is a great Chinese restaurant near here, too! That is if you ever come back down this way. The good news, I have a guest room now so you are welcome to crash here on your way to Baja, if need be.

There's a trick to always getting the KML file from any KMZ file - KMZ files are really just "ZIP" files. (At least on Windows) you can rename them from myfile.kmz to myfile.zip, and then they open right up when you click them. Inside is your kml file.

Example
http://baja101.com/Baja-GPS/G12C29-8.kmz
http://baja101.com/Baja-GPS/G12C29-8.zip
Click on the KML version and get the same display

We like KML because we want to convert tracks for our GPS and the converters do not like the compressed KMZ files.

the later version of the Digital Baja Atlas will have hiking and goat trails
but that version is at least a year out
the Camino Real in the teaser gives you a good idea of what is in store

main Digital Baja Atlas sometime this year
will have to get the funding in place

I think that is the only issue Harald... the smaller, harbor-like bay between Papa Fernandez' and Alfonsina's is the true Bahía San Luis Gonzaga... some call it Willard Bay after the U.S. Navy H.O. Chart designation. The bigger, more open bay to Punta Final is the Ensenada de San Francisquito, named after the gold ore mill, now called Molino de Lacy and the place where the ore was shipped from (Puerto de San Francisquito, which is now the tourist campo, Punta Final. With a name like that, you can't blame anyone for simply calling it "Gonzaga Bay" too!


PS, some the island names have been changed from what the maps called them.


Navonics charts list the top bay as Bahia Williard and the bottom bay as Bahia San Luis Gonzaga. The Southern most inner bay is Ensenada de San Fransquitio.

That's what Harold should go with. That's what boaters will know them as.

oy - boaters charts are another can of worms

I have used them to find names that INEGI 50k will not give me
but that information has to be used with caution

In some cases I will list 2 different names for bays and playas
very true for some ranchos

I think Harald wants the true names rather than those on U.S. navy charts. The small north bay is the true Bahia San Luis Gonzaga named by Padre Consag in 1746. The bigger Bay is also called Gonzaga by everyone because the actual given name is really rediculous to say, Ensenada de San Francisquito, lol.
The point by Papa Fernandez's is Punta Willard, at the entrance to San Luis Gonzaga Bay. That is how the bay got called Willard also.

I like tradition when it comes to Baja names.
