Google Earth Workshop
April 22, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm | Stevenson Fireside LoungeFree
Google Earth is an online virtual globe that allows researchers and students to display layered information on modern satellite imagery. In this introductory hands-on tutorial, participants will be taught the basics of the program, including how to navigate and add custom content. We will focus specifically on the use of Google Earth for the Humanities, covering how to import and scale historic maps on top of the satellite imagery, how to add descriptive text and digital imagery to locations on the surface of the earth, and how to use the power of the program to organize one’s data temporally or thematically.
This workshop is especially useful for instructors wishing to add Google Earth mapping assignments to their courses. No prior knowledge required. Please bring laptops with the regular version of Google Earth pre-installed.
Space is limited, pre-registration required. Please check back for registration information
