Imagine traveling around the world to all of the exciting places you read about in novels and textbooks or talk about in class discussions. Google Earth allows you to step into the map and visually enhance the knowledge and understanding that we have found to be valuable. Now think, what can you bring to the table and share with others? What can you construct, design, customize, integrate, document and discover with Google Earth?
Before you begin creating your Google Earth project, remember to create a folder in Google Earth to hold all of the components if you plan on creating more than one placemark.
Note: Your project will be saved as a .kml or .kmz file and can only be opened in Google Earth.
