In investigating if it is possible to embed a VT that contains an iMovie into a Google Map, I found the following. I did get some feedback from VT that seems to verify the accuracy of my reporting. From GoogleMap Helps and forum, this seems to be true as well. If you find anything here you can disprove, please do get in touch with me.

1.You can embed a movie into a place maker in Google Maps as long as it comes through Google Videos or You Tube.

2. You cannot embed a VT into a Goggle Map placemaker even though you have code from VT. If you want to PAY to export a VT that contains a movie. Perhaps you could upload that into YouTube and get the embed code and make it work in GM.
I did not try this because teachers are not going to pay, usually.
3. You can link a VT in Google Maps very simply, just like you do a movie.

Here’s how to link a VT into Google Maps:
1.    Go to Google Map and click on edit.
2.    Click on the placemark, or create one by dragging the the placemark onto the map.
3.    In the box that opens, click on rich text option and type in a text title for the link and highlight it.
4.    Click on the link i con from the top menu, and paste in the link from your VT.

Wait a minute. How do get the html link from your VT?
When the VT is open, click on the drop down menu from the gear up in the left hand corner. The link to copy is found right above the big rectangle that says DONE.
