1. Introduction to Course Google Earth Pro Video: Hello. Welcome to the introduction for my course on Google Earth Pro. In this course, we're gonna cover a couple of very simple projects, including planning of road trip zoning a city and then sending our plans for that zone city and that road trip to someone else. So there's a lot of features in Google Earth that are very useful, like these two, you know, basic concepts that I, you know, just covered and a ton more. You may look at it and just see Oh, this looks like a giant globe. What can I really do with it? There's a lot of things that we can do. We're going to learn about Que Emil's and Cam's ease, which are Google's specific file formats that they have for mapping points and areas inside of Google Earth. You can send and share those people and their widely used We're going to teach you about the satellite imagery that is actually in this software and that has been archived and how to get more current versions of that. How to see Borders, how to see even Google's archived version of the moon, the Stars, solar system and awesome Mars. So there's gonna be some exciting content here that you may have not known about. And I am excited for you all to be here, would me? So stay tuned. I will post links and, uh, you know, files to the table of contents and everything you need for this course. So stay tuned. Happy to have you here. 2. Software Overview Google Earth Pro: Okay, So in this first video of this course, I'm going to give you an introduction to how the software works and just some basic features. Just a kind of an over fuse that you will understand sort of where to go for certain things that we're gonna look at when we're doing this course. Okay, so just to start out when you download Google Earth pro from their site, it's just you're gonna open it up and it's gonna locate Sackett like this. So it's going over some basic controls. You take the mouse wheel and you scroll in. Then that will zoom you down like falling toward Earth. And then if you move in and reverse, you're going to come back out all the way out. Uh, this faras, as far as you could go if you hold down the right mouse button, then you can manipulate there if you can turn it and you can kind of actually grab it and let go and sort of throw it and spin it around like this in this way, that will make you pretty dizzy. So another thing you could do is if you hold down the mouse wheel like clicker right here. You can If you move right or left, it will give you this sort of tilting view. Where your moving the earth like this. OK, so that's something to look at you. And if you hold on the right are the right mouse button. Sorry, Um, field on the right mouse button, and then you move in or out. It will zoom us in and out. But it will also give us this tilt. So once again, it's left mouse button. It's cut short clicking Grab that sort of our go to control where we wanna move around and look at things And then the wheel will let us tilting And the left will zoom and tilt or the right will zoom until so over here we've got in the top left hand corner Just the basic functions that you're gonna have and pretty much every other piece of software right here. So you sure you're saved? Function your edit function used like currently being shown you never hear, Add adding folders to keep, um, points in and we'll we'll go over how to make a point here in a minute and just general helping documentation that's in here in the top are here. We have our tools. So if we want to make a point, that's their, um if you wanted to make a polygon or something, that just sort of highlights a general area line. If you wanted to add images over something, if you want to measure something and that if you want to send something that you are working on, it here to somebody, you can do that through this top. Um, over here, just what the search bar is, where you can search for generally any name of anything inside of Google Earth. So if I wanted to search for Paris, all right, it would give me all these different options and that I clicked on it. I could just go and zoom right over to that. And you can actually, this moves really fast and I can give you that's too fast for you. I'll show you a way to take this and make it move. Not as fast. So that doesn't give you vertigo while you're working on the software, as some people like to slow things down a little bit. All right, so I'm gonna clear that out so over down here, it places, right. So this is where you can keep different places that you want to note? All right, So this this could be any, um, place Mark Andy Polygon Any thing that you've made, which is the to, um, main items that we will be creating those and also like, lines. So if you want to show, like, a routes for road, and we would keep all that and then all the folders inside of here. So we wanted Teoh, um, put a folder and here to keep a certain type of project with points we put in here. And over here, we down here lower. We have our layers area. So this is all sorts of layers. Here is a ton of stuff to cover over here. But these air built in to Google Earth, and they I can show you borders, places, different things like we're seeing here many, many features inside of that. Over here on the right, we have the North Aral, which is shows are how we are oriented at the time. And then this right here is street view, and you can you can drop him down anywhere and you can go industry view if it's available. It's not always available in certain places. But here is street view of this location. And here it is, while pretty cool, we'll go over that a little bit more. Um, we also have this right here. This bar right here you can use if you hold down the left mouse button, you can move around. And that will That's pretty cool. Um, it also gives you a grabby, grabby tool right here. Gives you this glove what you kind of already have. So you don't really, really needed this. Just indicates that you can move with this, um, and then disbar here. It allows you to zoom in, we're out, and it just gives you kind of a, um measured waiting to do you said. And if you don't want to use your mouse So that's a general view in the next video. See too well right into that 3. Basics of KMLs & KMZs in Google Earth Pro: So this listen on, Google Earth Pro is going to be all about camels and Cam's ease and will be really quick. I'm just gonna go over the basics. So a camel or cams, he could be made of any collection of points Polygons, paths, um, image overlays, whatever you have anything that you can create with inside Google Earth, you can then export as a k m l or Kanzi soak. AML should be your primary item that you wanna export because it's more compatible with other versions. Have you had, like, a really, really big set of data, then you could use the camps each. It would be better on file size. Essentially, that's the difference between the two of them. But let's say that someone has, since you can know, right, and you want to open it, the simple way to do it is literally just double click on that and it should open up. And here we have a zoning proposal that we made in another episode, this course, so that opens right up to where it is. If you click on that and then hit delete on a keyboard boom gone right, seeing with our road trip. A road trip was over in Washington, and you can see how the maps flies right over to that. So they were you. So to go over making one of these and saving one of these really quick just to give you some more context of that. If I go ahead, I'm gonna drop a point, and I'm going to make a polygon, and then I'm going Teoh do a path. It's gonna make this path like that. Those are three items right there and then I'm going to make it folder right here is gonna add a folder right now. I'm gonna put all these items into that because that is the only way to save your, um, savior Camel or Kanzi. You wanna right click on this entitled folder and Hit Save Place as and then you can be. Then you can say that as that's one. Bam! There you. So now we look in our folder. There it is, Right. And if we do, you go all this out of there and open this up. There it is. There is became all that we just made. And if you drop us down, you'll see all all of this stuff so we can manipulate and changes items, receive it and then send back the same camel. What? Same project piece that you're working on with somebody else back to them as a camel. And you can modify it right in here. You just right click in this and be like I want this to be a place I want. Todo All right, Andi, on this right here will be a, um five. K route would be a crazy five Caro. Now it's definitely more than fucking anyhow, right? That would be how you do. That's that's all. That's everything you really need to know about camels. Camp sees on a basic level how to open them, how to close them, how to make them how to save them. Thanks for watching 4. How to zone a city inside Google Earth Pro: Alright. In this video, we're gonna do a simple project inside Google Earth Pro where we're actually going zone a city we're going to pick. We're gonna like a new proposed zoning areas for a locality. Right? So if, um, in theory, you had to do this, you know, because you work for a city or state government and into your you know, whatever you could, you could do this. So I'm just gonna pick a random said, Emma, pick Nashville, um, national Tennessee on search and go right over there. And we're going to rezone some of Nashville, and I'm gonna make it kind of crazy. So we're actually gonna say, you know, we don't you know, the airport. We're thinking of tearing it down, and we were gonna put some new We're gonna make it residential. We want to put houses there instead. People really like this whole airstrip vibe. It's really in the real estates really high. Let's say that that is case in. So we're gonna basically bulldoze the airport and make it a residential zones. It's no longer going to be a commercial airport area. We're gonna build houses on top of the airstrip, so we're going to go ahead and thisted time, you know, start will make a folder will be, like new zoning proposal. I'm gonna try to make this like a, um, like something we could present to somebody and explain that they would understand, So that would be kind of cool. So when I tilt this over and we're going to take a polygon and we're gonna put that over this airfield so we're gonna say, um proposed then show, um, zone for 2020 which is right now when I'm making it, I'm gonna do is I'm gonna start dropping dot So I'm gonna select starting right here, select around this airfield. All right. I was gonna paint the zone kind of broadly, just using these points. It's come around and you could see what I think I have by default is just white area, all right? And this looks really ugly right now, so we're gonna get into the style and the color. So the lines are a certain color in an area is a certain color with a certain transparency . So for residential, I'm gonna take that. I'm gonna make that like a nice like baby blue and then I'm gonna make the lines, like a similar color, and then the opacity. I'm gonna take it. I'm gonna crank it down to be like 20% is a little bit light, so it would be, like, 40% and you can kind of see what's going on there. So we're gonna do that. What's cool? That note about this too. You should see the measurement in here. So you could say, Hey, here's a proposed zoning change and the perimeter is 10 you know, 10 miles and perimeter. And it's almost, you know, it's 4.59 square miles. Right? So there we go. We have that area right there. And so now obviously, we have to pick a new place to put the airport. So we're gonna take another section right here, and we're gonna bulldoze all these houses, and we're gonna put the air field over here. Actually, let's put over here with this. This is like a golf course or something. So we'll put the Air airport over here so we'll do another polygon and start selecting that . We'll say we're gonna turn this into commercial. So when you when you finally, um well That's a path. I'm so sorry. So when you want to do a polygon different different than a path good to point out. So when you've selected one color already, you're going to tend toe have to change that. So we're gonna change us over to, like, read, okay? And we're gonna keep the same a passing business reds maybe a little bit more of, Ah, intense color red. We're gonna take that. And we're gonna say rename, um, gear report zone. OK, so that's our proposed airport zone and our proposed residential son right there. So you could do this. You could zone out every area and every capacity that you want. Um, now, here. But now that you have that, we're gonna go ahead and we're gonna save this save as I am. So the default comes of his kmc. Understand that Cam's he has a smaller file size, but K m l is more compatible with other Softwares. Most of the times, you gonna want to save a camel the majority of the time unless you're going strictly Google Earth to Google Earth. Right? So now that we saved that K ml of this new zoning proposal, we could go ahead and send that to the mayor, and then he can present that to the City Council and their young. So that is how did you? Um, that type of project we just made two polygons and pretty simple. I hope this is helpful. And see in the next video. 5. Planning a roadtrip in Google Earth Pro: All right. So we're gonna get started with our first project where we are going to plan a road trip. Now, we're going to do a very small road trip. We're not gonna take a whole lot of time, but I'm going to hit on the fundamentals of how to do this really quick and just follow along. And you can definitely scale this out once you've learned how to do these basic fundamentals here. So what we're gonna do is just use the mellis feel to zoom in, and we're gonna go over here just in Washington. But we'll figure out where we're at, so I'm gonna turn on inside the layer section. You want to turn on the borders and labels so we can see where we're at? We're gonna want turn on the roads and we can also turn on the police. Is because Why not? And I see over here when I tilt this down, I can see three. Do you got this nice mountain over here? So let's say I want to take a road trip over here from Tacoma to this nice mountain. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to take a police Mark. And I'm gonna make that my start button and you could go zoom in and find your actual house , or you could search for it. And, um, you picked that actual spot. But however you want to do it and I'm just gonna put start just for fun, right? We don't really need to mess with any of this other stuff in here. These are some advanced settings, and we don't need to worry about them too much. But what I can do is give this a fun little, um, starting thing Bill icon right here. So I'm gonna give it this little guy right here, OK, So it's gonna be my start, right? And then I'm sorry, Made it through around a little bit. I'm gonna go ahead and then draw a path. So I'm gonna go ahead and you kind of move this box out of the way. But sometimes it does get in the way. We can start making a path along this highway, and we don't have to be super exact. Um, with this all right, and we can zoom in to find the routes that we we actually want to take. So if you're planning a real road trip, you're gonna wanna have a rough idea of, You know, like, how many miles you're gonna be yelling, right? I don't want to be completely off, but you don't need to get every single bend, in my opinion, right? Depends on how particularly you want to be. So you're clicking every time to drop these points, right? You like change one of these points move it. You can kind of just adjust it like this, just left, click it and move it right. And we're going to call this path crowd. Right? And we made this a five a five wide with, but we could also make it, like, 20 wide, right? We changed the color to blue, right? So that's pretty cool. And then we're gonna just do a place mark at this mountain right here that says destination . We're gonna put a a green star for the icon there. Just that just was sick of looking kind of cool. So now that we have these three items, right, like your start destination we're gonna do is we're gonna add a folder, right? And this is gonna be called road trip. So this this road trip folder right here. Where we're gonna do is we're gonna put all of these other items in here, right? So this is a line and two points that we've named, and now we have them in a folder. It's important to have them in that folder because that's the way that you actually save the K M. L and the K M. L is the file type, and you can export. So you can put it into other Google products and lots of other software, right? So we're gonna right click on the folder, and we're gonna hit safe place, as which is how we get to do this. So road trip dai cams E k Mel, right? We'll go over difference to those later, but just really either or right, So bam. So now you have your camel file of your road trip. So now that you have that you have successfully planned out of road trip and there is that so the next lessons, we're gonna cover some other finer details and some other projects, including the zoning a city. So thanks for watching. See in the next one 6. Measuring and measurements in Google Earth Pro: in this video, we're going to go over the measuring feature or the ruler future inside of Google Earth Pro . We're just gonna do it really quick. So much going to show you the different options you have when you're using this tool. So to click it like I just did, we're gonna click on the ruler. I callin up here in the top, and we have several different options for how to measure. And we also have different units of measurement. So the 1st 1 that's gonna be pretty clear cut is going to be lined. So we're gonna see from point A to point B. That's the only option. You have point a to point B. Just click and drag and drop. And so we have all of these different, um, so like And miles, that's 1.5 miles, right? So path we have this. We change this mode. It actually allows it to between line and path. Yes, it stays about the same. No, never mind. States stay short. There may how you want to do path. So this is, you know, we're trying to see, you know, this could be an entire route that were manipulating changing this path however we want. All right, we can see how long that path is, so they could be like a running path, right? We're gonna go ahead and do polygon, so this will be perimeter and area, and we can change. That was to be separate. So if you want Ah, perimeter and miles and you want the area in acres, There you go. All right, circle and drop a point in the middle, and then just pull it out and you could see the radius area in circumference. Right? So three d path somewhere to a path, right? So you can measure the height and width of three buildings in the distance of points on building from points on buildings to the ground. So we don't many buildings in here. And these features not super commonly used. But you can use these and then you provide perimeter and area. So that's overall the basics of the measuring feature. And you can also see that when you make it normal path, you can see the measurement right here in this tab when you are ah editing the properties of that path. So when you two properties and go in here, and you can see that right in there. All right, so that is the basics of measuring and Google Earth Pro. Thanks for falling along and see in the next video. 7. Creating Maps & Screenshots inside Google Earth Pro: all right. In this section, we're going to go over how to print a certain view. Were a like a basically a digital map of what you've made to somebody. So we're gonna we're gonna figure out how to print that. We're gonna figure out how to send eat a J. B's get J. Peg. Just an image to somebody via email. We're also going to get into checking what we're doing against Google maps, and that's it. So we'll just jump right into it. Then I'm gonna open up a zoning proposal that we made in a previous course. We're gonna go over to that. And so basically, our task is gonna be that we are trying to propose. We're trying to send this proposal to somebody in the City Council so that they could decide whether or not they want to make this Sony change. So this could be any type of project ever that you want to share with somebody. Um, but in this case, this is what it is that we're gonna try to send somebody. So over here, if you go up to this section of four buttons here, So we have email print, save image and viewing Google maps. So if we hit save image, that allows us to create this, um, legend of sorts when we have a legend here and we have also a map title that we can make and we have a North arrow and we have a legend of shows like how wide of an area we're looking at And you see his resume out. It shows you know what is relative. We can also add in places roads, right? We're gonna because we want to know about this zoning change. We're gonna go ahead and, um, build this outside that city Council could decide here. So we wanna put in all of the things that would be that would add to our overall product, if you will. So to say, uh, zoning change for soul trying Airport switch. So this is a 2020 airports which were switching where the airport is, and we're putting that. We're putting airport up here on putting residential stuff over here. So, um, we're going to try to change this legendary you can hit refresh from view, and we're going to see if we can get it to line up the way that we want. So right now, it looks like we have a a bunch of stuff that we don't necessarily care about. We're gonna kind of remove everything from this legend because we don't have too much stuff that we don't want. So we're gonna do a legend. We just want the proposed residential zones to show the airport to show. Um, we'll leave the convention center and we'll leave. Um, that'll be it. Case. It will just do these areas right here. We'll leave those. All right? And then actually would have really kind of like it if those could slide up, But I don't think we can get him to slide up, so don't worry about that. Um, so now we have a title here, and we have a legend. So this is something that we can actually basically take a snapshot of and steak it over. So, um, we're gonna pick the resolution that we want. So currently we have this resolution, but let's just say for the sake of whatever we want our 7 20 HD right, we're four k ultra HD your 10. 80. All right, so it's pick 10. 80. So that shows you what it would look like in 10. 80. All right, so we're gonna say that's the size of the TVs that they have in the City Hall meetings. And this is what we want Display it on. So we wanted to be a full, nice wide display. So this is what we're going to pick, right? So with that, we have these map options. So if we want to turn off anything over here, like the compass or anything like that, we can do that, right? And then styling we can, um we could style these to be a little bit different, right? To see how the we kind of build this out. And actually, I like this one. So this kind of doled out Thea the map a little bit so that it's kind of more focused on those colors there instead of giving it the colorful map. We don't really need to see all that grass, right? So in this case, we're save image, right? And then we're gonna call this sounding change. Bam. And we just say there's J Peg and it'll process it over. And you see, we have it right in here. And if we pop that open. This is gonna be pretty big, but you can see right here. This is something that you can very clearly see and say. Ok, so this red right here is a proposed airport's own for 2020. And this is a proposed residential zone. Bam. There you go. Really easy to do. Really Could be if we want to email that to somebody. So let's say we wanna go and do that. We're going to say it were sent screenshot of the current view. All right? We're just gonna hit email, and then I'm not gonna log into it. But if you log into the space, gonna be like, Okay, where do you want to send it? And send it over. So that's something that celestic built in integration to Gmail or Microsoft Outlook. So you could just by default, start setting your stuff that you need to send over right in there. Cool. Um, let's go and look at print. So print is very much the same as what you would what we just did. Except for this is where you're gonna be able to save like a pdf. So, um, pdf zoning change, right? We'll save a pdf from this, just like we did. Um, looks like we made the J peg. Right. But you have to go over here to print, to be able to get that to work. So super easy. It'll take a minute and that'll turn it into a pdf for you. And good to go on that, um, he go over to actually print right? Then you can really just print this view straight off the way it is right there. There's also some other printing options and have options. And here is, Well, let's say we want to get rid of the compass. We just click that and the compass goes away in the bottom right hand corner right there. Okay, cool. So if you talk about one of these on her off, that's how you get rid of that view. And that is the basics to seeing in sending and creating those type of like, you know, products that you would actually send to somebody so you can show them exactly what you mean. If you wanted to cross check this with any Google maps, information cause Google maps, it does in fact, have different stuff than Google Earth. On some level, it's basically all the same stuff, but there's some different features than like the convention center. Maybe we'll look at that convention center and we'll see. Um, some some feature about this we need to maybe look at for our research. That is pretty cool. Toe have right here that we can inside this area quickly click on Google maps and see what's going on inside. That other data source that Gu has linked for us there. So very cool. Help. This is informational. And this helped you out. And, um, stay tuned for the next video on the course. 8. Options section in Google Earth Pro: in this video, we're going to go over the options section and Google Earth Pro, and we're going just give you a brief overview of some useful things that you can use for when you're working inside of here. So one of the most useful things in here, if you're actually trying to get points on a map changing your decimal degrees, degrees, minutes, seconds MGR s u T m all these different lat long variations thes will change the d felt the you that you see when you drop a point and you view its properties. So let's say that we drop a point here, right? It'll show and lat long currently. But if we change that item, then we will have that different a different option there, whatever you pick. So for a couple of these different items right here, if you change, the easies will make basically make everything maybe a little bit faster for you. Same with terrain. If you get rid of some of these, like three D imagery or high quality terrain than you'll get quicker resolution of faster rendering. So these are just quality features in here. Okay. Units of measurement feet, miles meters kilometers basically metric or standard. You can change that over. Um, you can dio your map size. You can change that and then also your zoom relation eso cash. If you want to clear this, this will basically free every up all of your space, just kind of ah differently feature in case it starts running slow. Try this for touring right here. So this kind of gives you some options to do with your tour filming, which we went over in the previous video. So this gives you just a couple different things you might want to change right here. Like the speed of how fast the tour is moving. Right. Um, let's see navigation fly to you. All right, so this is where you're so I changes from slow to fast or my mouse wheel from slow to fast .
