Google Earth 4 Visual Guides

(click for bigger images)

Back in March, Noel Jenkins contacted me to share some visual guides he created to help provide basic and advanced understanding of the Google Earth 3 interface. He now has posted similar guides for Google Earth 4 Beta. You can click on these images to see larger versions, or you can go to his post and download word documents which will let you print these guides.
Noel is also a devoted user of geographical browsers for education. He has two blogs: Digital Geography and Juicy Geography which contain useful information to educators. I particularly like his innovative ways of using technology in the classroom to teach geography – especially the use of Google Earth.

  1. How do I add information and pictures of a place with no info or pic?

    I don’t know what I’ve done wrong but I don’t get the same detail as what shows up in the help menu. My close-ups are just a big blurr – even 3D doesn’t work.
