GoogleEarth images

The Rainforest EVC (Ecological Vegetation Class) and RSOS boundaries have been overlayed onto Google Earth imagery to produce images that give a three dimensional perspective of the landscape where rainforest communities exist in East Gippsland. (Note: Rainforest EVC colour code is not consistent for all images.)


Image description: Most of the Cool Temperate rainforest in this site is within the Errinundra National Park (see red line). Small area to the north in the Delegate river threatened by clearfell logging. This site has no clearfell logging history.
