Google Lit Trips, Chromebooks & new Google Earth Web!

Take a look at the new Google Earth Web. It is gorgeous and brings incredible new resources to Google's mapping suite. No sooner did Google add its new web-based version of Google Earth to its mapping resources, than Eric Curts posted a blog giving step-by-step directions for viewing Lit Trips on Chromebooks with the new Google Earth.

Update for Google Earth for Web users only

We're very excited about the release of Google Earth for Web. However, for those with the pioneering spirit, there are a few caveats at this early stage:  Google Earth for Web currently requires the use of the Chrome browser. Plans to expand to other browsers are in the works. Importing KML and KMZ files is still considered "experimental."

We are modifying existing Lit Trips to maximize the experience within Google Earth Web. Unmodified files occasionally result in a red "X" instead of custom place markers, popup windows, and embedded media may be also be affected, resulting in alignment and scrolling issues. These and other minor issues are being addressed in the coming weeks. Check back frequently, as we create an enhanced library of Lit Trips for Google Earth Web.

Google Earth Web-compatible Lit Trip Titles are available here for Registered Members only.


Request a Lit Trip

You will receive the file in your email. We advise you to open the email with the Lit Trip download on a computer that has Google Earth installed, rather than on a mobile phone or tablet. We hope you enjoy it.
