Producing Maps with Google Earth

What to Expect

This set of materials is designed to teach you to produce materials within Google Earth. It differs from other manuals in that it tells you not just how to produce Google Earth projects it also shows you the best way to do this. For example, not only will you learn how to draw lines using the polygon tool, you will also learn how best to apply color and thickness to make your work as effective as possible.
