The maps listed below are available for download and viewing with Google Earth. You must first have Google Earth on your computer, which can be downloaded for free from the Google Earth. The first item "Yuba Map Set" actually contains 7 maps in one file. The individual maps are listed below Yuba Map Set (e.g., "roads") and can be downloaded individually. The roads.kml file is very lage and takes a while to load, so is not included in the "Yuba Map Set" file. To get the maps, right-click on one of the available maps below, which will automatically allow you to download the map-file to your computer. Once you have downloaded the file, you can open the file in Google Earth to view the contents (File>Open). Certain of the maps (e.g., population density per sub-watershed) have labels that you can turn on and off. You can change the viewing properties for the individual maps by right-clicking on the map name in the legend to the left, selecting "Properties" at the bottom of the menu-list, and changing the "style" properties.
