Google Earth Tutorial: Adding Features


In this video, we’re going to talk about how to add features in Google Earth. We’ll show you how to add placemarks, lines, shapes, Street View, and slides to
your project. Let’s start by adding a place. In Google Earth, click the Search button and search for a place you’d like to add
to your project. Once you find a place you like, click the “Add to Project” button in the
knowledge card. You can save the place to a new project or, if you’ve already created a project, you can save to one of your
existing projects using the dropdown menu. Don’t forget to click Save! The place will now appear in the list
of features in your project. You can also add places by dropping
a placemark directly on the globe. Click the “Add placemark” button in the
toolbar. Then click on the globe to drop the
placemark. Give your place a title and save it
to your project. Now let’s add a line. Click the “Draw Line or Shape” button in
the toolbar. And click on the globe to draw your line with a series of points. To save your line, press Enter. Give your line a title and save it to your
project. Now let’s add a shape. You use the same tool, the “Draw Line
or Shape” button in the toolbar, to draw a shape. Click the button in the toolbar and click
on the globe to draw your shape. Close your shape by clicking on your
first point. Give your shape a title, and save it to
your project. You can also add a favorite Street View
image. Click the Pegmen to see the blue lines
and dots that show where Street View is available. Click on a blue line or dot to enter
Street View. Set up the view you want, click the
“Capture Street View” button in the toolbar, to save the view and
give it a title. There is one last feature that we haven’t
covered yet. Slides. You can also add a
fullscreen slide to your project as an introduction, section break, or ending. Click the “Add to project” button, you’ll see you can add placemarks, lines,
shapes, and slides from this menu. Select “Fullscreen slide.” Here in the Property editor, you can
design your slide with an image, and a title and description. You can reorder any slides or places in
your project. So if you’ve made an intro slide, you can
drag and drop it to the first place on the list. To see your finished project,
click “Present.” Use the Previous and Next buttons in the
Table of Contents to journey through your project. Now you know all about features you can use to build your Earth project. Go ahead and start adding!
