Google Earth tours: Gaywood Valley Project

This project uses Google Earth tours to enhance public landscape awareness. This work is to be published in Landscape and Urban Planning in 2015. Click here for further details.

Take a virtual flight over Gaywood River Valley in west Norfolk. See the benefits provided by nature. Take a trip through time to see how the past environment shapes what we see today.
