Options for Saving a Project

3 Methods for Saving a Project

The first method is an e-mail function, which allows you to send either a .JPG file of the current view that has no interaction, a snapshot that sends a file opening the current view in Google Earth with no data or a file containing information contained in your project attached to each created feature.  Simply click on the e-mail icon and select your preferred attachment

 

The second method creates a project file that will send a .KMZ file containing your full interactive project recognized by Google Earth that can be downloaded, e-mailed or made available on the Internet via your website or submitted to the Google Earth Gallery.  If your are interested in sharing your data or allowing others to contribute to your work, this is the recommended method for your project.  Simply right-click on the folder containing all of your data and select save as.

 

The third method allows you to created a high-quality printed map containing descriptions of the locations included in your project rather than a digital image.  Simply navigate to an area that interests you and select the print icon.
