    Hi Tom,
    
    Looking at the "Results" (my word) output page, under the "Event" column, 
    there is a clickable titled "center line". Clicking produced a 10 second 
    output at .2 second spacing, centered on the "Closet Point". This should be 
    about a 50 mile line.
    
    During this process, I saw info that indicates the ability to overlay 
    "Google Earth" with the "center line" output. Couldn't get that to work for 
    me, but I wasn't trying to hard.
    
    Robin
