GEOS 200 Assignment #1 Google Earth Due: Thursday, January 24 Description: Use map navigation tools in Google Earth to find Louisville, Davidson Hall (on U of L campus), and your place of residence. Record the orientation of your residence (i.e. which direction it faces), its lat/long coordinates and elevation. 1. Download Google Earth onto your computer. (If you do not have access to a computer, please email me so we can get you access to a computer in the Geography computer lab). Go to http://earth.google.com/ . In the upper right corner, click on Get Google Earth (free version) and follow directions to download the software on your computer. 2.

Open Google Earth and type in your city under the Fly To tab (example: Louisville, Kentucky). Google Earth will zoom to that city. Move your cursor to the upper right hand corner of the map.
