5. Take your photos on tour

What we'll do - transform your Google Maps photos into a Google Earth Tour.

How to do it:


Step 1.  Make a Google Earth file of your Google Map.

A.  Return to your Google My Map  and make sure the box next to the title of your map is checked and that you have added three or more placemarks.

B.  Look at the top right of your Map where it says View in Google Earth and click that link.



C. By clicking on the View in Google Earth link, the file download box should pop up and you should click "Save" to save the Google Earth KMZ (or KML) file to your computer.

D If you have Google Earth on your computer, you can click that file and it will open in Google Earth and you can see your converted Google Map in Google Earth. If you need to install Google Earth on your own computer, you can download a free copy of it at http://earth.google.com/.  If you want to know more about Google Earth there is a tour here: http://earth.google.com/tour.html and a more extensive tutorial here: http://earth.google.com/userguide/v4/tutorials/index.html.

Enjoy your tour!
