Here are the links to some videos that you may find interesting and useful.

Connecting Google Maps to images in a HyperStudio project (and capturing G.Maps images also):  http://bit.ly/cHtn7H

Folder of files used in the video:  http://bit.ly/d22QYR

Connecting Google Earth to images in a HyperStudio project (and capturing G.Earth images also):  http://bit.ly/dhZOVV

The building of the basic "Famous Places" project can be done in 1-2 minutes, including connecting all the cards, using a folder of images from Flickr.  Here is the video that shows that, along with the automatic attributions (urls of sources) generated by HyperStudio:  http://bit.ly/a3hrgB

The folder of images from Flickr and bookmark files to the Flickr pages is here:  http://bit.ly/d6A1Gu

The usefulness of this in the effort to get teachers to use Google Earth and Google Maps is that in some cases, what they would otherwise produce are just fragments of a project, not a cohesive work on the curriculum topic.  

HyperStudio makes it possible to not only integrate Google Earth and Google Maps in a fraction of the time (and that much less of a learning curve, and thus barrier), but the final use is more meaningful in an overall project that demonstrates some actual transformative learning on the part of the student.

HyperStudio automatically connects iPhone photos to Google Maps, so here is the link for that:  http://bit.ly/baI7aB

Here is a folder of geotagged iPhone photos, mostly from the tidepools in San Diego (La Jolla), but a few others, including a San Francisco streetcar:  http://bit.ly/cCfMW2

And here is a collection on Flickr of the photos:  http://bit.ly/RogersGeo

I found this makes for a very impressive fast demo: ask someone with an iPhone to take a picture in the workshop, and email it to you. When it appears in your email, drag the attachment on to a card in an open HyperStudio project.  

Clicking on the graphic object on the HS card will instantly go to the satellite view of the roof of the building that you're in at that very moment.  It's really a "grabber" for any audience.  :)
