From the “Big Hairy Deal” Department ::
The latest version of Google Earth (version 4) has just been released so I promptly downloaded it to have a look around. If you’ve never checked it out you’re really missing out on one of the finest applications to come out of the Googleplex in Mountain View, California. There are a lot of folks that have come up with some very interesting uses for Google Earth and one that really caught my attention was the undertaking of a fellow who goes by the moniker of Mangani. He has taken the reports of Sasquatch, or Bigfoot, encounters reported on various websites and entered the data to allow a visual representation of the data in Google Earth. When you see the data presented in this fashion you get a much clearer idea of just how many encounters there actually are. Considering the fact that many encounters go unreported it really makes you wonder if there just might be something to the Sasquatch, or Bigfoot phenomena.
If you want to see what I’m talking about there’s a couple of things you’re going to have to do:
- Download Google Earth 4 if you haven’t done so already.
- Install it and get it up and running so you get a feel for it.
- Go to the “Google Earth Community” and click the “View in Google Earth” link.
- When the dialog box opens click the radio button “Open With” and if it isn’t already selected, choose “Google Earth”.
- Prepare to set aside at least an hour or two for exploration.
If that gets your curiosity up then you’ll likely be interested in this directory of Sasquatch and Bigfoot links that I’ve put together. One of the links in the directory has most of the available Sasquatch and Bigfoot videos including one of the latest taken by the ferry operator, Bobby Clarke, at Norway House, Manitoba. Prepare to keep yourself occupied for another hour or two.
