Google Earth for Ethnobotanists Workshop

I heard that the Annual Meeting for the Society for Economic Botany had a Google Earth workshop recently. The workshop was led by Dr. Kim Bridges of the Univ.of Hawaii and included "demonstrations and exercises start(ing) with the basic features of Google Earth and extend(ing) to a variety of tasks that are helpful to ethnobotanists." To find out more go to the meeting web page and scroll down to POST-MEETING EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS and then Google Earth for Ethnobotanists.

Here are Prof. Bridges' materials for the workshop. He includes how to use Google Earth in ethnobotany, making KMLs, using photos, using GPS points, lists of web resources, and many others useful examples.
