Google Earth Workshops Coming to Kampala and Nairobi

Wondering which Google Geo tool to use? Google Earth or Google Maps? What about Google Map Maker and Google SketchUp? Well, this is your opportunity to learn everything from the experts. The Google Earth Outreach team has organized workshops that are scheduled for October 30th at Speke Resort Munyonyo in Kampala Uganda and another on November 5th in Nairobi Kenya.

A series of these workshops will be held during the AfricaGIS conference. Even those not attending the AfricaGIS conference can attend the Google Earth event. You can register for the Google Earth workshop without having registered for AfricaGIS. Registration is free but required.

Google Earth Outreach gives non-profits and public benefit organizations the knowledge and resources they need to visualize their cause and tell their story in Google Earth and Maps to the hundreds of millions of people who use them. According to Google Earth:

Google Earth lets you fly anywhere on Earth to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain,3D buildings, from galaxies in outer space to the canyons of the ocean. You can explore rich geographical content, save your toured places, and share with others.

During the events, participants will get first hand information from partners who have used the tools, explore Google Earth layers created by other public benefit organizations, and learn how to create their own maps. No prior mapping experience is required.
