Using Google Earth
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
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]http://wikimarion.org/imageurl.jpg[/img]. You can also use standard HTML, for example: <img src="http://wikimarion.org/imageurl.jpg"/>
