Google Earth Outreach Showcase

The Google Earth Outreach Showcase is a terrific way to teach students about how “how non-profit and public benefit organizations are using Google Earth and Maps to visualize their cause. You can see both Earth and Maps projects, and read about the impact the organizations have had using these different mapping technologies.”

Examples include:

  • World water map
  • Clean water in Haiti
  • Southern Forests for the Future
  • Chile earthquake maps

A fantastic resource for geography; fantastic maps with lots of added information for students to make connections with. A reminder that you will need to have Google Earth downloaded on your computer before you can access these maps.
