Victorian Rainforest: A 3D Virtual Reality Perspective

Victorian Rainforest Network (VRN) uses this innovative website as new way to learn about rainforest and native forest logging issues (on public land) in Victoria (Australia) by providing overlays to be used with Google Earth, so anyone can have a 3D virtual reality forest tour.
With the help of overlays created by VRN for Google Earth users can do the following:
- discover where rainforest exists,
- see past and future clearfell logging,
- see National Park boundaries,
- see location of Rainforest Sites of Significance,
- see location of the Melbourne domestic water supply catchments threatened by logging,
- check rainforest buffers
