The Geotours Workbook is the go-to resource for using Google Earth to explore the fascinating geology of our planet:
Learn to Quickly and Easily Navigate the Google Earth Interface
Students can transform their view of the Earth using the 3-D Google Earth interface to view features on the Earth's surface from any height or perspective.
Explore Stunning Geologic Sites
Instructors and students can visit Geotour locations all over the globe to study plate tectonics, volcanoes, earthquakes, faults, folds, environmental issues, and more. Students learn to see, interpret, and analyze these sites as a geologist would by answering worksheet questions arranged by topic. Users can also browse the library of over 450 Geotour virtual field trips for a self-guided exploration of outstanding examples of geology around the world.
Create Your Own Media-Rich Content for Google Earth
The Geotours Workbook shows instructors and students how to easily create their own Google Earth placemarks (with formatted text, images or animated gifs, movies, and hyperlinks), interactive flyover tours over the landscape, draped geo-referenced maps and diagrams over the terrain, zoomable photos, and more.
This easy-to-use workbook is a great value. Geotours Workbook can be packaged for free with Stephen Marshak's Earth: A Portrait of a Planet and Essentials of Geology textbooks. It can serve as a supplement in any course where students need hands-on experience with Google Earth, or it can be used standalone.
