This lab needs instructions, because it has a slightly different format. Because people are working on different devices, there is are at least two methods. This lab uses GOOGLE Earth, which is a standalone program, but also a web plugin. Each version has slightly different features.
If you are on a full featured computer, you will need to download Google Earth Pro, and install it, from here: https://www.google.com/earth/versions/#earth-pro (Links to an external site.)
If you are on a chromebook, or tablet, you can access it via the web, but you will need to follow these instructions to load the data into the web interface. Click on the “Projects” button. Once you have downloaded everything for the lab, you can Select open, and pick “Import File from Computer.” This will import the data into the Google Earth webpage. The down arrows allow you to see the layers added, and do things like follow the instructions to click on points. However, the standalone version has more features. Some overlays appear not to work well in the web version.

Scroll Down to lab exercise 26: There are 3 components, an introductory video (helpful), a PDF of the instructions titled, “Exercise 26 PDF,” and the kml file. The kml file is the data you will use in Google Earth to answer the questions in the PDF. Downloading and double clicking on the kml file should open Google Earth, unless you are using the web version
Oh, and at least one of the questions requires you to be through slide 72 in the lectures, where I talk about Ian McHarg and his dune structures.
Pro tip: turn off layers you aren’t using to get rid of artifacts in the display. 3D buildings tend to poke through maps.
