Rough Draft Tour of Potential Dam Sites on Boise River in Idaho

Six sites for a new water storage dam are being studied by the Army Corps of Engineers and Idaho Water Resources Board.  We helped Idaho Rivers United create a 2D Google Map showing these sites.  They are initiating a campaign to prevent any of these dams being built.  Here is a link to the IRU web page where information is available about this project.

This is just a first concept draft of this Google Earth Tour to demonstrate the 3D Guided tour possibilities to IRU and the ability to embed the tour to run on a Blog site.

Please note the "Controller Bar" in the bottom left of the tour window.  You can pause, the tour at any time.  Also note the Google Earth navigation tools in the upper right corner of the window.  When paused you can zoom in and out and move around the  map at your leisure.  When you start to play the tour again it will return to the place where it was paused.  (You can also move the controller bar slider back and forward when paused)
