Utilizing Google Earth Within Geospatial Projects

Google Earth – a unique and innovative program for visualizing locations on the Earth within a virtual, 3-dimensional environment.  Many of us have used this program for locating places or obtaining information, but did you know the tools within this program can be utilized for research, data visualization and project presentation?

Through a user-friendly and universally accessible platform, Google Earth offers features allowing you to:

  • Develop and present information through the creation of cartographic features
  • Examine locations in detail through high-resolution satellite and street level imagery
  • Understand physical features through 3-dimesional models and elevation data

GIS Services has created a series of video tutorials designed to introduce you to the different tools and features found in Google Earth that will assist you in creating and presenting your information in a geospatial context.  Video tutorials in this series include the following:
