See the kmz file and open it to Google Earth and play with it. Turn it on and watch it build a USGS Topo overlay with the "USGS Topo Map Overlays" submenu selected.......
On rare occasions when the USGS server is down you will get a big red X - try again later - this day was one of them,otherwise I would have attached a sample jpg screen shot of my place with the overlay working instead of the X.

Google Earth streams the world over wired and wireless networks enabling users to virtually go anywhere on the planet and see places in photographic detail. This is not like any map you have ever seen. This is a 3D model of the real world, based on real satellite images combined with maps, guides to restaurants, hotels, entertainment, businesses and more. You can zoom from space to street level instantly and then pan or jump from place to place, city to city, even country to country.
