See the paths of ringed Mediterranean Gulls on Google EarthThis page allows you to easily see on Google Earth where your Mediterranean Gulls have been seen.
You need to have Google Earth installed on your computer to see the results. If you do not, you can download it here.
Just upload the .rtf file containing the life-histories of gulls, and then, download the results.
You may encounter some problems when trying to upload a file :
- An error 500 page : it means the server is too busy to do its work. The server may be too lazy too !
- A blank page : it appears sometimes. Similar cause than error 500
- A message "No coordinates found". Please check the type of rings chosen for the file you sent (see examples)
If the life-history of your birds looks like that, it means it contains "White or Green Dutch & Belgian rings" :
