Seeing Beneath Stonehenge

Armchair archaeologists take note! You can now explore the many layers of Stonehenge in Google Earth with the Google Under-the-Earth: Seeing Beneath Stonehenge project.

Atlantic Public Media

Ever wonder how Arctic Terns rack up enough mileage to fly to the moon and back three times? Find out by watching a Google Earth tour from the podcast series One Species at a Time, created by nonprofit organizations Atlantic Public Media and Encyclopedia of Life

In One Species at a Time, producers normally use sound to tell fascinating stories about biodiversity on this planet. With this podcast on the Arctic Tern, they've tried something new: using the touring feature in Google Earth to weave in geographic animation and imagery to tell the story of the Arctic Tern's great migration. To see this tour yourself, download the KML to view in Google Earth or watch it on YouTube. You can read more about how the producers put together the story in Google Earth on the Lat Long Blog. These tours were a product of a Google Earth Outreach Developer Grant
