Grand Tour Journey around Europe for cultural education The custom — which flourished from about 1660 until the advent of large-scale rail transport in the 1840s and was associated with a standard itinerary — served as an educational rite of passage. Though the Grand Tour was primarily associated with the British nobility and wealthy landed gentry, similar trips were made by wealthy young men of other Protestant Northern European nations, and, from the second half of the 18th century, by some South and North Americans. By the mid 18th century, the Grand Tour had become a regular feature of aristocratic education in Central Europe as well, although it was restricted to the higher nobility. The tradition declined as enthusiasm for neo-classical culture waned, and with the advent of accessible rail and steamship travel—an era in which Thomas Cook made the "Cook's Tour" of early mass tourism a byword.
Introduction – Google Earth Studio Google Earth Studio is a browser-based animation tool for Google Earth's 3D and satellite imagery. Google Earth has a massive store of 2D and 3D Earth data, from large-scale geological features to individual city buildings. Earth Studio is the easiest way to leverage this imagery for still and animated content. We modeled Earth Studio on industry-standard animation tools, so motion professionals can pick it up and start animating right away.
