Nice...you can also make virtual field trips in Google Maps, like one covering German speaking Europe http://www.begeleidzelfstandigleren.com/aardrijkskunde/losse_animat... or one in London http://www.begeleidzelfstandigleren.com/aardrijkskunde/losse_animat......
Great site - will look at ways of integrating this as our students have poor mapping skills and sense of place - will need to spend some time on this.
