Every trip belongs in EveryTrail.
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2008
EveryTrail, the leading online GPS trip sharing website, today announced its successful integration within Google Earth. Trips on the EveryTrail activity-based travel blogging and trip sharing website are now available as a layer inside of Google Earth. With the EveryTrail layer active, Google Earth users can navigate to a particular location and see actual trips taken by members of the growing EveryTrail community. Whether it is adventure travel, outdoor activities, cultural attractions or simply viewing the actual terrain and the places you plan to visit, the EveryTrail layer brings your destination alive, and you see actual trips taken by real people, complete with photos and trip notes, and all of it presented by Google's three dimensional view of the route.
"We're very excited by our inclusion in Google Earth," said Joost Schreve, Founder and CEO of GlobalMotion Media Inc., parent company of EveryTrail. "Our travel blogging and GPS trip sharing community is growing, and our availability inside Google Earth will help more travelers discover EveryTrail. But more importantly, adventure travelers and vacationers looking for outdoor activities will have better, more activity filled trips by seeing shared trips inside Google Earth. We think that GPS trip sharing in Google Earth is a powerful way to capture or plan a trip, because the trips are integrated with all of the Google Earth facilities."
Seeing EveryTrail trips inside Google Earth is powerful, yet amazingly easy. Simply open Google Earth and activate the EveryTrail layer, fly to a destination, and look for the EveryTrail icons. Click an icon at the location, and the trip route, photos and trip notes are all displayed right inside Google Earth. EveryTrail itself, and EveryTrail in Google Earth, are much better ways to share a trip than the traditional video or slideshow.
EveryTrail has features for geotagging your trip and presenting it. Once you have uploaded your trail, you can add placemarks, notes, and photos. EveryTrail can even make corrections for you if your camera has the wrong date or time. The service correlates the time stamps on your photos with your GPS trail and automatically places photos along your route (if your camera's time is set incorrectly, you only have to tell EveryTrail where one particular photo was taken, and it will calculate the positions for all the rest).
People planning a trip can look for ideas and activities by searching for trip destinations in over one hundred twenty countries or a wide variety of activities including hiking, biking, walking, driving, running, sailing or even hangliding and paragliding. There are plenty of good reasons why - as founder Joost Schreve likes to say - "Every trip belongs in EveryTrail."
