Virtual Tourism – Google Maps and Google Earth

By August 29, 2007 One Comment

The ability to embed YouTube movies into Google Maps and now more recently in Google Earth opens up the ability to view video of locations. As such the concept is almost custom made for Virtual Tourism and the aptly named Virtual Toursim blog has created a map with over 150 movies.

They kindly include the code to embed the map, take a look below – each icon indicates a movie to view:

The videos can also be viewed in Google Earth, visit Virtual Tourism for the KML file.

    Thanks for the link. Two of the videos, the Bank of England and St John’s Church are actually Digital Urban creations – so I owe thanks twice.
