In 2006 Google Earth significantly improved their map resolution,
making it possible for archeologists and historians to explore
remote parts of the Middle East for ancient ruins. As Nabataea.net
researchers and readers have located historically significant
sites in the Nabataean Region using Google Earth, the links have
been shared with others through this webpage. If you have Google
Earth installed on your computer, and then follow these links,
you can get an aerial view of many of the historical sites that
we mention on this website.
First, make sure that you have installed Google Earth on your
computer. You will need to be running Windows XP or better, or
Mac OS X (10.3.9 +) or better. Google Earth is a broadband, 3D
application that not all computers can run. You will need a good
graphics card and a fast internet connection. Generally desktop
computers older than 4 years old, and notebook computers older
than 2 years old may not be able to run it. If you can get it
to run, the results are truly spectacular. You can download Google
Earth by visiting this site: http://earth.google.com/
Once Google Earth is working on your computer, Click on the
photo. Google Earth should open, and go to the site in the photograph.
If this does not work, then right click the photo and then "Save
link as..." and save the link on your computer. Then click
the link from where you saved it on your compute, and it should
direct Google Earth to the location in the photograph.
If you find more Hejaz Railway stations on Google Earth, please
send us the corresponding .kmz file and we will post it here,
with your name (if your like).
