Hey thanks for this great list I am going to follow up some of those. I've been using http://www.communitywalk.com/map/185929 for a project based at http://runtomeetyou.wikispaces.com/

The community walk site was the best one I could find that allowed us to edit a path on the map. If you have any other suggestions I'd love to hear. We'd also love to hear if anyone is keen to run to meet us.

Cheers

Thanks for the post about definr too that is another great tool.

I know of schools in Fife that have used the "run to you" idea, but not using google earth, which might enhance it more.

They first of all 'walked to' John O' Groats, with the P1 pupils doing 1 lap of the school, P2s 2 laps, P3s 3 laps etc each day. This cumulative total didn't take too long so they then 'walked to' Gambia, where they were linked to a school. You could use Google Earth to keep a record/ track of where you're school's perambulations had taken you to, and have fitter pupils & staff?

From John Naughton's blog today

MapEcos http://mapecos.org/ is very interesting — an application that superimposes location and emission data on Google maps. Go to a location and see where the local polluters are. Click on one of them and up pops date from the EPA database.

It works only for the US at present, but it’s a really neat application of Web 2.0 tools.

The second idea about keeping the google earth image turning is a good one. It will instantly catch there eye and spark interest.
