Everyone is Doing It

Posting about Google Earth that is. Version 5.0, with – and I ‘copy and paste,’ the new lexicon for quote…
- Historical imagery from around the globe
- Ocean floor and surface data from marine experts
- Simplified touring with audio and voice recording
Their demo video pretty much says it all. The historic imagery lets you go back in time to see how the location you’re viewing has changed. The cubicle-based deep sea explorers, the new ocean features integrate maps of the ocean’s floor along with videos from National Geographic with Google Earth, very impressive. But where I think GEV5 has the most application is in recording custom tours. Pretours could be the new presentation modus operandi.
There are a series of great Youtube videos, blocked by the eduthinkers outside the classroom so enjoy, when and where you can.
