Quikmap - Whittingham School visit Seahouses

This is my first experiment with creating a map using Quikmap. I have based it on the walk that the Year 4 children from Whittingham Primary School In Northumberland made from the Seahouses Hostel to the seafront in April 2007.

Seahouses Harbour - Collage created using Picasa

Click here or on the image to be taken to the Seahouses website

I've recently begun to use the Picasa photo-gallery from Google and am very taken with. It has many very useful features, including a time-line that lets you find images according to the date they were stored on the computer. It also has some very useful image editing tools (my only issue with the programme is that there is no re-sizing tool). Web-galleries can be created and shared with contacts via e-mail. The whole package is interlinked to both Google Earth and to Blogger, which makes linking into the Google suite of programmes very easy. I particularly like how both Picasa images and Quickmaps can be viewed in Google Earth.
