I love finding new and neat technology. Most of you are familiar with the Local Notice to Mariners. You may not be aware that there is also a "International" Notice to Mariners - it is actually called the "Notice to Mariners." This covers areas not covered by the USCG local notices. You can find it on the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency web site. Now here is the cool part. If rather than clicking on the "Notice to Mariners" link you click on the "Broadcast Warnings" link you can download a Google Earth .kmz file of the warnings.
The actual link (good when I wrote this) to the download is: http://msi.nga.mil/NGAPortal/MSI.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=msi_portal_page_63
