Borehole KML File
The IODP Scientific Borehole KML file, in addition to showing the location of all holes drilled during DSDP, ODP, and IODP, provides links to expedition publications that correspond to drill sites. Proposed drill sites also have been updated and linked to the IODP Site Survey Data Bank. Move a mouse over borehole locations to display links that lead to corresponding online data. Drilled holes are displayed by default. Select Proposed Sites and/or the Site Survey data link from the left menu in Google Earth to view that additional information (it will take up to 30 seconds for Google Earth to react because of the huge amount of data.) Be patient. Once loaded, the navigation is fast. Do not use these files on a slow computer or with a slow Internet connection.
Wait 10 to 15 seconds for Google Earth to start loading data.
Alternatively, you may download the holes.kml file from the link above and load it directly from your device into Google Earth.
