Using Google Earth, you can

  • Anchor text or images to geographic locations using placemarks
  • Create paths, which are like placemarks, but lines rather than points
  • Create tours of placemarks
  • Overlay an image, usually a historical map, on top of GE's satellite imagery

Create Placemarks

A placemark is displayed as a pushpin or other icon on Google Earth. It can include text or images. To create a placemark, click the pushpin icon above the viewing area.

To embed an image, upload it to WikiMarion or another site. Then create a placemark and insert [img][/img]. You can also use standard HTML, for example: <img src=""/>
