Google Maps Exercise for Biblical Geography

I'm teaching a survey course on the lands of the Bible. Google Maps is an outstanding (and free) resource for experiencing the lands virtually. To help those who are not fully familiar with the features in Google Maps, I composed a brief exercise to help students see what is possible, especially as it pertains to biblical geography. In the exercise, step by step directions are provided to:
  • learn basic navigation skills in Google Maps
  • use Map, Satellite, Earth, Terrain, and Street Views
  • see Panaramio photos
HERE is the PDF file to use. If you have other good suggestions, let me know.

I have now posted another exercise for Google Earth.
