Google Earth fly in to an Idaho Noxious Weed-Dyers Woad

Click on the image to the left to watch a QuickTime Google Earth Fly in above Idaho to a location in Bannock County where there is an infestation of Dyers Woad. The fly in dissolves to a video narration with Dave Hallinan, Bannock County Weed Supervisor, explaining to Roger Batt, Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign Coordinator, how a fungus called rust acts as a bio control agent.

This High Definition 720p movie (Screen Size 1280 x 720)
is hosted on my Blip.tv space where you can also watch it in a flash format and an interesting new "full screen" format. Also note that I created the original Google Earth Fly in movie was in a true High Definition window size (1920 x 1080) and the HDV video content was edited in Final Cut Pro in the same size.

Eric Sandmeyer has gratiously allowed me to attach a portion of his "Soaring" sound file to this movie. This music really adds to the fly in.

We (Mountain Visions) are creating a web site for the Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign. A full screen 360 degree panorama and additional video sequences describing Dyers Woad are available to view if you click here.

Hi Gary,

This GE to vid is really well executed. This is super clear on my monitor, wow! And yeah, I think the music does something for prepping the narration. Looking forward to more collaborative work with you and Katy.

But, We have a question: are you and Katy married?
Why have you chosen the Yellowstone National park?
