Geoscience education using a brand-new Google Earth

Takashi Sawaguchi


A brand-new browser-based Google Earth version 9.0 has been released in April 2017. This paper presents pedagogical ideas for geoscience education using Google Earth. Several KML files representing geospatial data and images are compiled into a downloadable file. Students can learn geoscience subjects through step-by-step interactive activities as they observe various geological and geographical information such as topography, bathymetry, volcanoes , ocean floor age, gravity anomaly and so on.
