  A Round Trip Ticket to Google Earth  


A Round Trip Ticket has been created as a training guide for both Google Earth and Google Sky. The 24 slide presentation includes all the major Google Earth tools with interactive video lessons. Viewers will learn how to create narratives, and imbed video hyperlinks within a place mark window as well as create thematic virtual trips. A special section has been provided for creating image layers through creative commons searches. Viewers will learn how to navigate, measure, search, set layers, create scripts with hyperlinks, save a tour as a kmz file, resize overlays with links, and embed kmz files into a presentation.


At the end of the presentation you will “Vault into the Heavens” by taking a short tour of Google Sky and many of its features. Google has a new venture called Google Sky. The new feature allows users to get close views to 100 million galaxies and 200 million stars. To view the Google Sky, download the recent version Google earth software. To launch the Sky application, go to view and select to ‘switch to sky’. With Google Sky you can zoom in to see stars, planets, and constellations.

Many reference resources have been added to the presentation including Google Earth and Sky virtual trips. In “Take A Tour of the Planets”, Einstein appears to introduce, Saturn, Mercury and Venus which are the predominated August planets now hovering over North America. 


Google has just released a new Google Earth 4 beta with several new features. On Windows the new version number is 4.0.2416. The Mac version is 4.0.2413. The biggest news is that two features formerly only available in the GE Plus version (which costs $20/year) are now available in the free version. You can now draw paths and polygons with the new free GE 4. Other new features include: new icons for placemarks, faster loading 3D models, improved lighting for 3D models (much better), and printing of driving directions and folders.

In this lesson I am going to demonstrate how to create a Google Earth KMZ file and then add a video resource link with additional information about my topic.
