Google Earth is a free, powerful, friendly, and fun mapping program that enables any adventurous user to explore satellite photos of the Earth, the Moon, Mars, and even the Stars beyond from the comfort of home, library or People Plus. All that’s needed is a capable PC or Mac computer, preferably a two-button scroll-wheel mouse and high-speed Internet access.
In an introductory presentation on March 4th from 10:00 -11:30 AM at Curtis Memorial Library, Instructor Craig Snapp will demonstrate some of the powerful capabilities of Google Earth including worldwide searching, Street View, 3D Buildings, Earth Gallery, historical satellite imagery, touring of scenic and important world sites, access to public map databases and the ability to create custom maps that can be shared with friends and family.
The introductory lecture will be followed with hands on instruction workshops in the People Plus computer lab on March 11 & 18 from 9:30-11:30 AM. People Plus can accommodate 12 attendees without computers and the class can host an additional 3 attendees with laptops. There will be a 15 person maximum placed on these workshops.
