Google Earth is a really exiting adventure, I spent the whole sunday with it...
I tried to locate some villages in Khevsureti (and also Tusheti). I am not sure about the right places of Dshuta (Juta) and of Shatili, because the landmarks (rivers) repeat close on other places. Maybe both villages are set a bit too far north. Buildings itself can not yet been detected/seen quite good with that resolution, but for Shatili one might almost sense. I am quite sure about Roshka and Arkhoty.
This summer I could take a GPS device there and feed the data into Google Earth, then it should be the more likely locations.
Google Earth is free. You can download it here. It takes a short while to become familiar with all the buttons of the interface. But then, it's fun !

Not a long time ago, there was nothing to find on Khevsureti and the Khevsurs on Wikipedia, but now there is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khevsurs and of course anybody can add content and edit.
Archil Kikodze wrote a nice article on CENN, "Legends of Khevsureti"
