New Images of Massive Trees and Giant Stumps on Google Earth

 Ancient forest campaigner and photographer TJ Watt has been steadily uploading new shots of BC's biggest trees and most massive stumps to Google Earth, a popular global satellite-imaging program. This allows users around the world to view ancient forest photographs on both Google Earth and Google Maps.

 Many of the areas the Ancient Forest Alliance (AFA) documents on Vancouver Island are quite remote; by tagging photos and providing GPS coordinates on Google Earth, the AFA is able make these magnificent, remote ecosystems accessible to viewers all over the world.

 

To view TJ's images, visit the link to the Panoramio galley at: http://www.panoramio.com/user/3576104

 

To see them mapped visit: http://www.panoramio.com/map/?user=3576104

 

Keep visiting the image gallery! Great new photos will be added regularly.

 Also, for those interested in doing some research of their own, Google Earth is a great way to familiarise yourself with BC's landscape and to see what is truly happening down BC’s backroads. For a free download of the Google Earth program visit: http://earth.google.com/
