Google Earth Basics

This class is designed to familiarize students with Google Earth, increase their efficiency and competency in the platform and turn Google Earth into their favorite, most useful tool and a one-stop shop for a bounty of property information. With years of experience using Google Earth, I have learned plenty of tools, tips and tricks that have helped me become extra efficient at using Google Earth and I know they can help you too.

By the end of this class you will know how to: change settings to make Google Earth more user friendly, install useful overlays (including a topography map overlay, FEMA flood map overlay, and a soil map overlay), recognize land uses and potential hazards including marijuana growing operations, and create great-looking maps with an easy-to-use map-making template.

Real estate professionals, lenders, landowners, farm managers and more can benefit from the resources in this class.
