Webinar: Making Google Earth Work for Land Management

If you haven't looked up your property on Google Earth, stop right now and do it. Keep this page open, and I'll see you in an hour or two. (Don't drool on your keyboard.)

Here's a shot of part of our property. Much higher zoom levels are possible:

Google Earth is a powerful tool that helps landowners see their land and understand it better. This leads to improved land management decision making and information sharing.

NC State University is hosting a webinar that will discuss and demonstrate basic Google Earth setup, exploration, navigation, menus, data creation, and production. The outcome is that participants should be able to use Earth in making land management decisions.

This is directed at Land managers, natural resource professionals, government agency professionals, and landowners.

Time & Date: January 19, 2011, from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (Eastern).

Thanks to Andy at WSU for passing along the information for me to share with you.
