I admit to everyone that I did not learn enough geography. My father could put together the wooden puzzle of the United States at breakneck speed! He often said that I was learning nothing in school.
Google Earth is more amazing to me than Second Life! (It does seem as foreign to me and sort of virtual reality in nature.) With each update, I forget what I learned before and become frustrated easily. Writing this section in my upcoming book has taken days of re-learning and searching for help.
I was doing fine, reviewing what I learned before until I decided to move a placemark. The Help files say I should be able to do it like I did with version 3 but that is NOT the case. (Isn't Help supposed to be well, help?)
In steps the UK Web site and its associated blog called Juicy Geography. In the blog, under Guides are two important documents for Google Earth version 4 that are lifesavers. They are in Word format, so you can just print them out and use them. One is about navigation and the other is about making a placemark and moving a placemark. You MUST get these.
The folks at Juicy also shared this link named "What is GPS?" Some people think GPS is the name of the devices in cars and that the directions are somewhat magical.
OK, so I'm not that bad. But, where the heck is Nebraska?
