How to create a virtual tour right from your computer and share it.

Google's Tour Creator enable's you to create your own virtual tour of anywhere in the world right from the comfort of your own computer. You can even share the tour and enjoy in Expeditions.

A few hints before you (or your students/children) create one:

  • make sure a script is ready so you can copy and paste the information
  • you will probably not find the exact image you would like right away so move Pegman (yellow guy) around the area you are interested in
    • you will see a snapshot of what is there so be patient and drag around until you see what you want
  • make sure to select a starting point for your image
  • create some points of interest
    • only have a 300 character limit
  • publish your creation 
  • if open in Expeditions you will find the newly created tour in My Tours
    • you can download the tour when you see it in My Tours
  • you can go back and alter and adjust the tour even after you create it
  • when published you will see a direct link that you can be copied to the clipboard
  • to see the tour I created for the purpose of this blog post - click on the link below:

Embedded below is a 9 minute and 35 second YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
