Share your ideas for stories on Google Earth

Level 4

Earlier this year, we launched Google Earth Voyager, a way to tour the globe through interactive stories. We were thrilled to have a new channel to celebrate the amazing photos and reviews that Local Guides capture every day. Since then, we've published 28 Local Guides lists about fascinating places all over the worldfrom haunted houses to historic tennis stadiums. We've even recognized local discoveries that you told us about on Connect. We want to know what you'd like to see on Voyager in 2018.

 

Check out all the stories below, and share your ideas for each category in the comments.

@LawrenceNYC thank you for the invitation and keep up the good work!

 

Volcanology is one of my hobbies and passions. It made me move and live on Tenerife, where our volcano Teide is one of the top places that people visit on Google Street-View (as claimed on Wikipedia).

There are 3 main categories of volcanoes (red, grey and super-volcanoes). They appear over "hotspots" in our earth's mantle or near the borders of our tectonic plates. Most volcanos are all very scenic and perfect opportunities for Google Earth to showcase them. The stories could include legends and goddesses like Pele on Hawaii, the history of Pompeii and Herculaneum in Italy, etc.

 

Of course, I would be very offended (just kidding) if  Mount Teide was not featured as well. Here we also have aboriginal legends related to the spirit of our volcano. 

 

Canarias Local Guides are working on a project related to mapping our volcanic heritage, but that will take some time. Feel free to get in touch.

I would like to see on Voyager 2018 about Normandy beaches - Omaha, Utah, Sword, Juno, Gold & Cotentin peninsula. Legendary historic places wellknown of it's past, unknown of it's present. I want to know about modern young people of that territory of Normandy.

What wonderful stories @LawrenceNYC

Ever thought of going to Bangladesh to highlight them on Google earth as well? We have a small little country with booming economy and a very rich history and cultural background. I'm sure it will be helpful for a lot of users out there to know the stories of Bangladesh. What do you think?

Nice!
