Google Earth

I hade used Google Earth before we used it in class only because it came loaded on our new Mac. I was impressed with how many other things could be done with it, things that I had never even considered. I enjoyed having a "pro" walk us through it and explain some of the features that had escaped me on my solo wanderings through the program. I also enjoyed the explanation as to the sources of the data. I had wondered why it was so obviously not current information and was glad to learn this. I also enjoyed looking at the three-dimensional views of Minneapolis. I am anxious to show my family what I have learned. But... then again, I can barely get some of them to use MapQuest. =)
