They hope it could be used to inspire school groups to make their own fun videos with a message? Wessex would be happy to link/feature any completed videos on their own website.

Google Earth

This is a very exciting service from Google and is free to use the basic version (the full version is free to Educational users).

Go to:


You will need to register and then download an installer file. This will create an icon on your desktop that will load Google Earth. It will, in effect, give you an interactive globe on your computer. Click on a point on this globe and you will 'fly' around to that point and then zoom in to see aerial photo coverage.

It is also possible to 'flatten' out the view to look around as if standing on the ground. In some places you can also see 3D models of buildings superimposed on the view, as here in the view of Manhattan.

You will need to have Windows XP to use this service and also a reasonable graphics card - plus, of course, a broadband connection.
