Explore Civil War Trails in Google Earth

The state of Pennsylvania has just launched a new portal to enable people to explore the Pennsylvania Civil War Trails online. The system uses the Google Earth Plug-in, then overlays various placemarks, information and imagery.


Of particular note is the impressive GigaPan imagery throughout the map; massive images of battlefields and other noteworthy areas that can be explored similarly to the Gigapxl Photos in Google Earth.

You can check it out for yourself from the Google Earth page on the pacivilwartrails.com site.
