Santa Claus Tracker Google Earth Layer

Added: Just wanted to make sure everyone remembered they could use Google Earth to show thier kids where Santa was on Christmas eve. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.

Here is a great new layer for Google Earth, you can find presents hidden all over the Google Earth program, and you can track Santa Claus on December 24th with it. How cool is that? Now you won’t have to look at some stupid radar screen with a dumb outline of Santa’s sleigh on the evening news, now you can actually track Santa Claus kids!

First, you need to download Google Earth by clicking this link, , Google Earth comes as part of the Google Pack, with loads of other software, you can select or de-select whichever ones you want, then you need to get the kml file here. More detailed instructions are available here.

Hello boys and girls. Ready to find some toys? Santa has hidden a treasure trove of presents somewhere in Google Earth (actually, it was a few of his elves, but you get the idea) . Every day from December 12th until Christmas Eve, a clue will appear outside Santa’s North Pole workshop which, if you can solve it, will lead you to a toy hidden in a Google Earth satellite image. And every day, the location of the previous day’s toy will be revealed.

On December 24th, Santa will load his sleigh, take the reins and soar into the skies, delivering presents to good children all over the world. And now you can follow his fabled flight. First, you must download the latest version of Google Earth. Then download the Santa Tracker/Toy Hunt file. You’re done! [tag]Google Earth[/tag] will automatically refresh each day. What are you waiting for? Source: Google

This looks really cool, I will have to get some hot chocolate so the kids and I can bask in the glow of our computer monitors while we watch Santa head our way. Find other layers by clicking here Google Earth Layers.

Google just updated their blog, with this post,

As you know, every Christmas Eve Santa Claus gets busy on his tricked-out sleigh, soaring around the globe to deliver presents to (presumably deserving) children the world over. This year, even if you don’t have a reindeer team of your own, you can use the Google Earth Santa Tracker.
