Google Earth is a great resource and I like to add my personal placemarks but I don't know how pre-existing placemark labels are made public.

Other users have clearly added their own placemarks, very useful to all, but how do they manage to do this? It's a possible means of mischief and misinformation -- so do they have to be approved by a moderator? Thanks.

Hello,

-Which version of OS X?
-Are you using the Google Earth app - if so, which version?

I am not sure how it actually works, since it is a Google product, and I don;t have much experience with it. You could try the steps here: Create & manage placemarks. You could contact Google directly to find out what their policy is and how to make your placemarks viewable by the public.

Hope that helps a bit,

C

On my Macbook Pro. Google Earth already has many useful placemarks and labels. The method given for creating placemarks only renders them for personal use on one's own version of GE -- not for public viewing.
It's a very obvious dichotomy which Google hasn't bothered to differentiate for users.
