GPS Visualizer is a free, easy-to-use online utility that creates maps and profiles from GPS data (tracks and waypoints, including GPX files), driving routes, street addresses, or simple coordinates. Use it to see where you've been, plan where you're going, or visualize geographic data (business locations, scientific observations, events, customers, real estate, geotagged photos, "GPS drawing," etc.).
Visualise GPS data logs using various maps including Google Maps andGoogle Earth. There is also a height profille generator. Also JPG, PNG,SVG and Yahoo Flash output. Also generate some additional mappingoverlays for Google Earth. - post by Julian Knight

Create KML overlays for Google Earth
NOTE: GPSVisualizer_overlays.kml (a GE "network link") gives you automatic access to this form's output from within Google Earth. [more info]
This page will help you create alternate overlays for use with Google Earth. It's true that Google Earth already contains high-resolution satellite data for many cities (and even some non-urban areas); but in parts of the U.S., the USGS black-and-white 1m aerial photos provide better detail, and the USGS topo maps contain information which is not available in GE in any form. For the rest of the world, the images from NASA's MODIS satellites might be of interest, if your data covers a large area; they transmit up-to-date (but low-resolution) images back to earth every day.
This fine academic tool was designed to assist in the writing of reports, grant applications, and other documents related to public schools. I believe that it will be particularly useful for people involved in writing reports for WASC accreditation.

Google Sites allows you to create a custom website with your own content. You can set up a site for your class, your school, your library, or any other group that needs to share information and ideas. You can invite others to be editors and owners of the site so they can collaborate with you to build your website. The editor makes it possible to build a site in minutes, create templates for others to use, collaborate with others and create different pages such as announcements, dashboards, file cabinets, or lists. As the author, you have control over who has access to the site by sharing with everyone or only specific individuals. Google Sites also has the ability to embed media from many other Google services, including Picasa Web Albums, YouTube videos, and Google Docs. You can also insert images, tables, and other resources from outside of Google.
