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.)
