Many topics are location based. Historical events, geographical phenomena, scientific discovery even the course of a work of fiction. In Google Maps you can drop markers, numbered if you want, and add text and web based images and video. When the marker is clicked a window opens to reveal the collected information. Construct a tour or write your own story where the events take place in different locations. Also ideal for school field trips that are too expensive or dangerous. A website called Scribble Maps also does this. You can begin by using just the marker tool and the edit tool and develop from there. Both Google Maps and Scribble Maps can be viewed on their own page or embedded on a webpage or saved for use in Google Earth.

Here is a simple example with just one marker to click on. Scroll down and you will see images and video as well as text.
