VIDEO and GOOGLE EARTH

Video is obviously a powerful tool to get get your message across. Cameras are getting smaller and video can be edited to provide spectacular effects. Here is an example produced on a 6x5cm camera:

Cycle ride through North Holland

One way to get your website noticed is to add the location of your business or club on maps and add special events to calendars. See our Mapping Page for the use of calendars and conventional (2-dimensional, static) maps. Latest technology also allows for the use of 3-dimensional, dynamic maps. Here is an example:

Otago Rail Trail - New Zealand Cycleway

This video was created by combining a Google Earth fly-over with photos and sound. Google Earth or other video footage can be used in this way to present holiday tours or other 'geo-spatial' information to friends and family or a wider audience.

It is also possible to view maps and tours in 3D movies directly using Google Earth. The software to make this possible can be downloaded free to your computer via the following link:

Download Google Earth for PC, MAC or Linux

Check system requirements before downloading

With the Google Earth software downloaded on your computer, you or the visitors to your website will then be able to view movies like these ones: (These links download so-called 'kmz' files which will run in the Google Earth application when opened. Please mark the "Terrain" flag in the Google Earth Layers panel to see the 3D effect):

Tongariro Crossing   -   Milford Track   -   Lake Waikaremoana

These video sequences run in Google Earth using small coded instruction files, which can easily be e-mailed or stored on your website without taking much space on your website or much time to download. Please contact us, if you want this type of video clips produced for your website or other presentation purposes.
