TankTerminals.com also offers the ability to download all 4,611 icons of the listed terminals into Google Earth free-of-charge. This KMZ file can be downloaded (by anybody, subscriber and non-subscriber) from http://www.tankterminals.com/kml/AllTankTerminals.kmz. If you download this file to your hard disk, e.g. your Desktop, and double-click this file, Google Earth will be launched (provided you have this application present on your computer) and the green icons will be shown in exactly the position where the relevant terminal is located on earth. Any green icon can be clicked (one click) and a small window will open with the port/city name and the country name where the terminal is located. In this window a link is provided which, when clicked, will deeplink you to the relevant Terminal Fact Sheet of that terminal in our database, provided you have access to our database through a Global Account, Regional Account or a Credit Account (this latter account is initially totally free-of-charge).
The online version of the KMZ file offers the following advantage. You will receive an automatic update of the KMZ file if you put the link http://www.tankterminals.com/kml/AllTankTerminals.kmz as a network link in Google Earth. This should be done as follows. Launch Google Earth, go to “Add” in the top navigation bar, go to “Network link” in the pull down menu and paste the above mentioned link in the “Link” box. Click on OK. If we now update the KMZ file (e.g. by adding or deleting terminals), this update will now automatically be included every day in what is displayed in your Google Earth. Google Earth can be downloaded for free from http://earth.google.com/download-earth.html.
