    YVR-Flyer, thanks for posting this! It's actually for Google Earth.

    I am the owner of this website. I do have some additional updates that I still need to do for the current data, but it does again have nearly all current SPG properties. I have a lot on my plate for work right now, but I anticipate another update within the next two weeks.

    I'm also anticipating that SPG will soon announce a new round of category changes, so I plan to provide some special updates once that list is out. The idea here is to help members identify award bookings that they should consider before the changes take effect.

    I've often considered adding Master Thread forum links for each hotel that has one. I'll investigate this again in the near future.

    Comments and corrections can be sent to me in this thread, as a private Conversation, or through the website.

    Very nice work. Is it possible to also do a mashup with Google maps?

    I think that it is now a possibility, but it wasn't when I first built the mapping files. Goggle Maps couldn't handle so many properties at the time.

    I don't have any planned timeline for piecing it together, though.
