Our Maps use Google Earth (GE) aerial images, with overlays from SWRDC. The aerial views may have been taken some years ago and may not reflect the current state of the vegetation. SWRDC overlays are reviewed as part of our progress reporting and are updated to reflect significant changes.

We recommend that you use GE to view our maps. If you do not have Google Earth, it is readily available as a free download for a wide variety of operating systems, and can be installed in a few minutes. It is simple and fun to use. There is a short note showing how to use GE to display the maps and overlays here.

If you are not using GE we have included some maps in PDF format below.

GE Tours are a new (early 2012) feature of Google Earth. They allow the user to view and "fly over" terrain as if from an aeroplane, with audio and annotations added. We are currently exploring this feature and and intend to add appropriate tours to our site.

A sample tour will be added here as soon as it is available.

Combined GE map overlays. All maps and overlays have been placed into a single top-level GE KMZ file. This folder contains sub-files which in turn contain overlays for the following categories:- Land Ownership. Catchments, Work Management Areas, Weed Infestations, Native Vegetation, Quadrats, Work Activity, and Fire History.

When you have accessed the top-level folder, you can activate the overlays in the sub-files as desired, using the functions provided by GE.

Access the full set of individual overlays here.
