HyperStudio - A Great Way to Start a Google Earth/Maps Tour


1. Take a photo with any location-enabled (GPS) camera.




2. Drag and drop the original* photo from the desktop or folder on to a card in your HyperStudio project.   Re-size as desired by dragging the corners of the graphic object, or use “Scale and Rotate” in the Layout menu.




3. Now in the browse mode, click on the graphic object.  HyperStudio has automatically set up the “Open a Web Page” action to display the location where the photo was taken in Google Maps in your browser.





In this case, it’s a photo of the famous “Blue Bear” at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.




It’s easy to link both Google Earth and Google Maps locations to objects in a HyperStudio project.  Watch the two videos below to see how!
