Google Earth map

Now you can also explore the map from within Google Earth. Open Google Earth (install first if you haven't done so already) by clicking the link below. The map consists of two layers, the vegetation map itself and a layer with vegetation labels (letter codes). Click on any of these codes to get the full name of the vegetation type at that location. The pop-up will show with the vegetation name and a link that will open a fact sheet with a concise description of that vegetation type and a list of species naturally occurring in the selected potential natural vegetation type.
