Musicians in Google Earth

Musicians and Composers in Google EarthSomeone at the Google Earth Community called ‘Biggles99’ has begun an ambitious project to collect placemarks showing the birthplaces of the world’s musicians and composers, with details describing briefly their bios, pictures, and possibly even videos showing more information and the sounds of their music (Note: only the Windows version of GE will show embedded videos). Links are provided to more biographical information. The initial collection was released just a couple of weeks ago, and already there are dozens of musicians in a wide variety of genres. Response from the community has been enthusiastic. Read the thread of posts here. The author has indicated he plans to do a lot more over the coming months. Great idea!

  1. This is indeed a great project and a fantastic use of GE.
    We hope it will inspire more members to create some great informative works.
