Google Earth must be the most fascinating application on the web today. Did you ever have a globe and use it to just dream about far away places? Did you wish you could just point at any place on that globe and dive in – finding out all you ever wanted to know? That’s Google Earth. A magic globe that can tell you anything you want to know about any place.

The video below shows you how to use Google Earth to make your own map of where you are, then send it to a friend in an email so they can find you even in an obscure corner of a campground. You may already do this with other mapping programs, but I think you’ll like how it works with Google Earth. And, once you get started using Google Earth, you may never stop!
