Google Earth the Holy Land

I had a good time today playing with Google Earth 4 and some placemarks I downloaded for it that show historical sites in Jerusalem and the surrounding biblical lands. It is a lot cheaper than plane tickets! (But let's not kid ourselves. Keryn and I are still planning to go over there together as soon as we can afford it and life will allow it.)

If you'd like to take a tour yourself over your high-speed internet connection, download Google Earth and install it. After you have it installed, download the placemark files here and here.

I wrote a post a while back where I posted a couple of pictures of the BYU Jerusalem Center for those interested in that angle.

  • I can't claim any credit for the work, but I'm sure grateful for the people that put it all together. I think the shifting you are noticing in the images is caused by updated satellite imagery that doesn't perfectly match with the old imagery.
