Are you getting ready for you next big adventure behind the wheel but you’re not quite sure the best way to do some route planning?
We’ve been big fans of Google spatial products for years. They somehow manage to cram seemingly endless amounts of what I’m sure is very complex information in to a super-simple and fun-to-use interface. We’ve used their programs in nearly ever capacity of our trip planning, from studying off-road terrain in 3D using Google Earth, to reconnaissance “driving” confusing highway interchanges in Mexico City with StreetView, to using user-submitted Panoramia pics to identify the best park in a given town for a picnic lunch.
It seems Google recognizes the value in these products, too, and they’re looking to make everyone a pro at using them by hosting a series of web seminars covering each. It is a self-paced, online course where you will watch videos (or read text lessons) and apply the skills you learn. During the course, you will be able to collaborate with a worldwide community of learners and experts in the class forum, Hangouts, and via Google+. Mapping with Google course completion requires an internet-enabled desktop or laptop computer.
So discover new ways to navigate the world around you with Google Maps and Google Earth by registering for the class today.
