e. INTRODUCTION TO THE ATLAS DESIGN

The last placing is the overview of the story line that as developed for the Global Atlas. It is similar in nature to the first three blogs but ads the three-dimensional aspect of making use of the Web GIS. Each of the paragraphs in the story line has been illustrated by a 3D view of conservation area making use of Map Scene. It has amazed me how real these scenes have become while making these images available to environmental planning. The lack of maps with any article on conservation or conservation planning always disturbs me no matter how scientifically correct. The addition of the three dimensional nature of the landscape brings about a much greater understanding of the landscape.

A number of pages with the story line has been included below:
