I just did the Tour de France
Admittedly, it was from my front porch, but still. Someone did an overlay on Google Earth that shows the route. If you have google earth, this link will launch the overlay. I got the link from the google earth blog, a great place to read about what’s happening on Google Earth.
Also today, was the Wimbledon ladies final. We watched it, then decided to look at Google Earth to see an overhead shot of Center Court (and the pictures people have taken).
Then I thought, why aren’t more tourist locations using Google Earth? These two things are sporting events, but they are also tourist events.
I have an idea for a kml file for a client. More and more people will go to Google Earth to check stuff out. It’s free. It’s awesome. And marketers could be doing a better job using it. At least, better than this.
