I found many of our new exploring tools to be quite intreresting. We are going to have access to a plethora of programs which can aid us in our work. I did not realize that google provided so many tools to their users (I was still thinking of them as just a search engine). Now I can definitely see why the company is as popular as it is. In particular, I liked their map program because I found it to be efficient and easy to use, and I can see myself working well with it for future assignments. As for the KML stuff, I am still a little confused about what exactly it is and how to export one’s map in KML formatt. But I am sure this will come to me over time. I look forward to getting to work with these tools for the second half of the semester.
