Running in parallel with this blog is a presentation of Cook’s first voyage in Google Earth. The journal, as posted here every day, is read aloud as a 3D model of a ship follows the track of Endeavour in Google Earth.
At the start of this project, the desktop Google Earth application was the target platform, but since then the voyage has been transferred to run in the Google Earth plugin. It now loads much faster than before.
To view the voyage, click on the link on the right of the page. You need to install the Google Earth plugin, a quick and easy step to follow.
