"Open Foris Collect Earth server should be running while the operator interprets data". When I installed and then opened Collect Earth. And the progress bar behind the Operator is red. The screen always showed that " Open Foris Collect Earth server should be running while the operator interprets data".

Dear Hong,

First of all, when you run Collect Earth you need to set your "Operator" name. This way later you can filter out the data collected by the person (operator) that collected the data. Just put your name or whatever you like to identify yourself on the red text field!

Then, when you collect data you need to make sure that the Collect Earth window (the image above) is still open in your computer, meaning that the internal Collect Earth server is running and the pop-up windows in Google Earth Pro can communicate with it! If Collect Earth is running you should not get any error messages on the pop-up ballons that appear when you click on Google Earth!

In the example above Collect Earth is running!

And in this example Collect Earth has been closed/quit so that the popup balloon is not able to communicate with it :(
