Infomapper - new to KES for 2007

As part of the Young People's Geographies, we are going to have access to an exciting ICT tool called INFOMAPPER.
I have seen this used quite a few times, as I have been working for The Guardian's Evaluate team at BETT and also at an RGS-IBG event on ICT in Geography and seen it in action.
It will be interesting to see what creative work we can produce using the software.
There are some VIRTUAL TOURS here so you can see what is possible.One feature I'd like to explore is to add HOTSPOTS on maps / aerial photographs to identify the places we find interesting. We will also be looking at using Google Earth for similar work.
