Tour de France 2009 on Google Maps and Google Earth

Paris Thover has done the hard work of transferring detailed Tour de France 2009 route information to Google Maps and Google Earth files. It's pretty cool stuff. Click here to see it all.

Mentioned also with some discussion at the Google Earth blog.

If haven't tried using Google Earth, here's what Stage 15 looks like using that software.

Thanks for the post. I tried something like that Tour de France flyover last night, except it was in my own hometown. Check out my first Youtube video! :)

Well done, Ron, and nice music too.

I have an pretty old version of Google Earth -- does the current edition do the video export for you?

I went Pro. I have an older verson, 4.3 I think. You can still create tours, and record them in version 5. Its not as smooth as making videos of routes. I'm having fun though. I may write a post on this soon! :)
