A quick demo of how easy it is to the new Google Earth 5 plugin, which supports tours. No understanding of KML is necessary, simply record your tour, save as .kmz and upload to a web location. The Embedded Tour Player Gadget provides the required embed code. The Google Earth plugin needs to be enabled in the user’s browser.

To avoid irritating people without the Google Earth plugin, I’ve moved the demonstration to this page

My example illustrates Ethiopia’s controversial (aren’t they all?) Gibe III hydroelectric dam project, due to be completed in 2011. Great BBC resources here.
