Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 16, 2013 7:09 PM

Google Earth is a great teaching tool for geographers, but it is also a way to bring geography and spatial thinking to other disciplines.  Google Lit Trips makes the journeys that take place in literature (both fiction and non-fiction) all the more real by mapping out the movements as a KML file that can be viewed in Google Earth.  By embedding pictures, websites, videos and text into the path, this becomes an incredibly interactive resource for teachers of all levels.

Utiliser Google Earth pour cartographier l'itinéraire de personnages de fiction, afin de mêler géographie et littérature.

NASA - The Spacesuit

NASA - The Spacesuit | MrsWunder's Blog | Scoop.it

Geography, by the strictest of definitions is Earthbound because of its name; but all geographers have had a spirit of exploration that spurs them to make new discoveries about exotic places and unopened frontiers.  Who hasn't dreamed of putting on a spacesuit and exploring the great unknown of space?  This interactive feature is about as close as 99.99% of us will ever get to strapping on a spacesuit and making and enjoying an extraterrestrial voyage.
