Making Maps with Google Earth and Google Maps
Making Maps with Google Earth and Google Maps by Shane Bradt of the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension (April 6, 2010). This webinar demonstrated how to make interactive and 3D maps using free Google mapping tools. It explored the basics of Google Earth and Google Maps with a focus on creating maps to share with others. With Google Earth, you can show points, lines and areas with colors and icons of your choice and link to webpages, pictures and email addresses. Google Maps provides the ability to create a custom map online and share it with colleagues, have them contribute to the map, and embed your custom map in your own website.
