The tour features in Google Earth can be an excellent way to show historical events. A great example of that is with the various tours that Colin Hazelhurst created to show Captain James Cook’s exploration of Australia, or Peter Olsen’s tour that showed the fateful voyage of the Costa Concordia.
Dimi Christopoulos recently sent us a tour that he created that showcases a historical battle that took place near his village during the Greek Independence fight in 1825 against the Turks.
The site is completely in Greek, but the tour is amazing. It features various overlays, music, voiceovers and images. Even in a foreign language (to me), I was able to follow most of the action. It’s very well done and I encourage you to view the full tour on his site.
Great work Dimi!
