Created by Taylor Kendal of TPS-Colorado as an example activity incorporating the Google Earth technology.  Students would need a basic understanding of HTML to include the image, links and table in the placemark descriptions.  No advanced skills are required to create this activity including simple text in the description boxes.


Estimated development time 


Without HTML: 2 hrs.

With HTML: 4 hrs.
