Google Earth "Tour Builder" Resources

Have you heard about Google Earth Tour Builder? It was introduced a few months back, and is a browser-based tool to assist you in creating your Google Earth Tours. Tour Builder is a storytelling tool which lets you easily create and explore stories and places around the world. Based on the Google Earth plugin, you can create a tour of any subject of your choosing, zooming in to show the places where events took place, and easily integrating the story’s text, photos and videos. Your tour will fly users from one place to the next along the storyline of your tour, immersing them in the relevant places through Google Earth’s imagery and the custom content you provide. Very cool way to share your travel with others. What a great way to help students travel the world without needing a signed permission slip!
