Images of Massive Trees, Giant Stumps, and Wild Places 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.
