Trip pictures in Google Earth

Google Earth Trip Map

In my never ending quest to make things MORE complicated… I decided to use Google Earth as a slick way to show some of my pictures from my trip to Europe. This was a bit more difficult than I had originally expected, but the results were fantastic! (A good argument for that GPS digital camera!) I didn’t really want to show them on Thanksgiving, but the family was all together and they wanted to see them! After 2 hours of going through pictures (I used our projector in the living room so that everybody would be comfortable) we reached Budapest (the half way point) and decided to continue next time!

For those of you with Google Earth, I have converted my local version of the show to a downloadable .kml.

For those who don’t have Google Earth, I highly recommend trying it out! It is truly incredible!

I basically took a few pictures of each city, used Google Earth to figure out where I took them from and then created a link with the actual picture. It took long enough for the 70 or so pictures that I selected, I can’t imagine doing it for ALL of the pics! 🙂 Stay tuned for more location based imagery as I start sifting through the rest of my 10gb collection of digital pics… uggh…

As if I needed another project!

  1. Do you have the most recent version? I just tried it with my computer here at work without a problem. (also updated the post with some action pics of the KML file)
