Maps: Virtual Earth, 2010
Click the above map for the main Bing (nee Virtual Earth) Map Application for 2010.
The map has also been implemented using a Google Maps base map. This has been written using the new v3 API and should be considered experimental. This version supports multi-touch navigation, as found on the Apple iPad.
Position the mouse over an icon or shape on the Icons layer, so see information about the icon.
Individual layers can be hidden using the layers box in the upper right. This can also be hidden be clicking on the "x".
Virtual Earth's 3d mode also works but the layer selection box will not be visible. You will also need to install the Virtual Earth 3D control if you do not already have it.
All of the blue map icons have been supplied by Sue Pichotta of Icons-icons.com. All of these icons are © Copyright 2008 Icons-Icons.com.
The ASTER Satellite Image layer is a near infra-red daytime image taken by the ASTER imaging instrument flying on the NASA EOS Terra satellite. This is taken from the ASTA Volcano Archive (AVA) for Arenal. These images are available via Smithsonian's Global Volcanism pages for Arenal. This particular image was acquired on 29th August 2005, and has a Granule ID of SC:AST_L1A.003:2030725270.
The black and white aerial photograph was supplied by Leaves & Lizards. It was taken after the cabins and main house were built, but before the first teak plantations were planted.
The remaining layers are KML files, created using student field data. The boundary of the main Leaves and Lizards property is taken from Costa Rica Land Registry data.
