Google Earth Tour

After reading Wesley Fryer’s post on ‘Classroom Blog World Tour‘ and reading through the Google Earth Tutorial, I decided to have a go.  You can download my ‘Shropshire Secondary Schools‘ file and let me know what you think.

What tours do you think we could use in schools?  Maybe we could plot the route the Olympic Torch will take when it comes to England in 2012….

    Interesting tour thanks.
    The Sidney Opera House looks good from above too and the Seattle Seahawks stadium is interesting especially when you realise that Paul Allen is the Seahawks owner (Bill Gates and he founded Microsoft)!
    The view of the Statue in Rio is worth a look too (if you can find it). Did anyone notice in an earlier photo of the Eifel Tower the tower was bent?

    Hi All Experts,
    Does anyone use google earth images as ground image planes for use in aerial scenes. I know how to stitch them together but are there any tools or tricks to make sure that the images are at the same height, angle and such to make sure they stitch well. I know in the pro version you can get bigger images but im not going to pay for the pro version when i could stitch multiple images together…
