Google Maps Story

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

So, I thought I uploaded/posted this, but when I was commenting on others blogs today and then looked at mine I couldn’t find it. Not really sure what happened, but here it is now. Sorry for such a delay :(

Where I’m from is very much like everywhere else in the sense it has a movie theater, places to eat, a mall and of course Wal-mart. Other than that not terribly exciting! So I decided to mainly focus on places that represent my childhood and briefly mention a few stories/incidences that occurred there. I used Camtasia because 5 minutes wasn’t enough since every place other than my house is 15-20 minutes away (in reality), I couldn’t justify using only 5 minutes.  Hope you enjoy it!

My Google Maps: Welcome To Woodbridge

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

This week our project was to chose a place to make a Google Map of and then incorporate a video screen cast of that map. Since I was very leery of featuring my house in the map I decided to make a Google Map of Woodbridge, the area where I live, and all of my favorite places around this area. I hope you all enjoy my video of WELCOME TO WOODBRIDGE. You can view the actual map for yourselves at the link provided below.

Google Map of Dear Ol’ Pennsylvania

Here is my google map video it took me long and hard to get this published there were other places I would have liked to shown, but the length of the video then would have been too long.

I hope you enjoy!

Where Exactly *is* 4 Beeson Ct.?

Here’s a basic overview of where I’m from and what went down there.

I did not realize that the “demo” logo would be over the video the entire time– I am so sorry!

Don’t mind the end when I can’t figure out how to get out of capture mode ;) (and then when I sketchily–though accidentally– pull up my old Dean of Students’s resume…).

I wanted to go longer, but I was having some trouble with the capturing software. Hope you like it!

Pretty baller story, I know. I attached some pictures at the end of the experience. =]

The Historic Triangle

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

I used the Camtasia Studio application for this because when I started doing this, I realized I was going to need a lot more time than just 5 minutes. I really like this program, I personally like it a lot more than Windows Movie Maker, but don’t tell Microsoft that. I think we can all agree it’s pretty easy to use too. I went with the time restraint of ten minutes, which may seem like a lot, but because of the narration, to me it doesn’t seem too bad. But that’s just me, because I’m a nerd and love my hometown:]

The Not So Distant Past

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

So this is my google maps of my neighborhood. I know that this is supposed to be from our childhood, but unfortunately a lot of the old neighborhoods in the Philippines aren’t available on google maps. So instead, this is a tour of my childhood after I moved to America :)
