Use a Map!

Categories: Geography General

I spotted this excellent application on Ogle Earth yesterday and have to say, after playing around with it over the last couple of days, it' s impressive. Basically, you could find any point on Google Maps, say your house, and save the url so that you can edit the map, add photos, fix the zoom and so on. You can also send the map to friends by e-mail, open in Google Earth, and click anywhere else on the map to get directions from your placemark. I can see obvious advantages of using this in the Geography classroom, but even for personal use, giving directions to someone you know etc, this is ideal, and extremely easy to use. Why not try it out by clicking on the image?
