KML File of Coxs Road Original Line
A ‘KML’ file is a type of electronic file which can be read directly by some Geographic Information Systems in computers. They contain either point or line or polygon information in earth surface coordinate values. The coordinate system, the point or line size and colour are generally also held within the file so that when loaded into the software with some representative background data, the file data can viewed on the screen and the observer can get a feel of the relationship of the data to the ground.
Some years ago Mr Kevin Boole, a cartographer working for Land and Property Information managed to create a KML file using values taken from original surveying measurements and with the help of diaries dating back to the early 19th century. This file represents the nearest estimation of the line of the Evans/Cox route between the monument flagstaff at Bathurst and the Emu Ford crossing near Penrith.
The file can be viewed over the internet using any number of geographic information systems including the Land and Property Information’s “Six Maps” site, Google Earth or Google maps.
