There are no prerequisites! Both beginners and the technically savvy are encouraged to attend, as afternoon sessions will be divided into two groups to suit everyone's needs and answer everyone's questions. In these hands-on sessions, beginner participants will learn how to start building Earth or Maps applications and learn how to use these applications for internal planning, decision-making, and an overall mapping framework for their cause. More advanced users will take a deep dive into KML, learn how to make the most of Spreadsheet Mapper from its creator, learn how to integrate databases with Earth and Maps, and take a look at the Google Maps and Earth APIs. In both sessions, participants will actually map locations, create a Google Earth project, and learn how to promote Google Earth and Maps content online.
