A virtual visit

Back Omhoog/Up

Visit the Anialarra lapiaz, and fly through and over it in 3D, following the trace of the cave system (green or blue)

What do you need?

- Google Earth versie 3 -you can download it here
Warning: you need a recent and powerful computer with a modern Graphics adapter

DO NOT download Google 4 Beta - time being, it can not handle large image overlays

- The image overlays of the area (file Anialarra.kmz).   It consists out of a giant satellite photo (over 100 screenprints, manually stiched together in Photoshop), a detailed map of the area, and some placemarks.  Download the file here (13 MB).  Save it on your computer.  If the file wants to save itself as Anialarra.zip, rename it afterwards into Anialarra.kmz !!

And then?

Open the file Anialarra.kmz in Google Earth 3 (or double-click it).  Warning: it might take a few minutes for Google Earth to load the file, it is quite big!  AGAIN:  Google Earth 4 Beta can not handle it!

At the left, in the "Places" window, there will be a folder "Anialarra" (under Temporary Places) containing:

- an image overlay "Anialarra Photo Aerienne", and an image overlay "Anialarra Carte".  When you highlight an image overlay, a small slider will appear at the bottom of the Places Window.  Use it to adjust the transparency of the images.  On the map, the cave trace is shown in green (Anialarra System) or blue (FR3 and other caves)

- some placemarks like Pic d'Anie. Double-click them to fly to them.

Do use the 3D vision of Google Earth!  Press down the scroll wheel of your mouse and move the mouse.
