Virtual Globe vs Interactive Map: Choices, choices

A session at 45th Annual Society of Cartographers Summer School

Monday 7th September, 2009

3:45pm to 3:45pm (GMT)

Recently Google have developed a Google Earth plugin for browsers which works with the new tour functionality. This widens the choices available on how to publish your interactive map content. In this talk I will first explore ideas about when to produce a static map vs an interactive map. I will then go on to outline the advantages and disadvantages of publishing interactive maps in Google Earth the client, Google Earth the plugin, Google Maps and as a Google Earth tour. The discussion will cover considerations such as whether your content is Map with added web or Web with added map and also ideas about when and how to use the new tour facility.
