Viewing Wetlands with Google Earth

Google Earth allows you to travel the world through a virtual globe and view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, 3D buildings, and much more. With Google Earth's rich, geographical content, you are able to experience a more realistic view of the world. Google Earth acquires the best imagery available, most of which is approximately one to three years old, and also provides access to historical imagery.

Using this KML file, Google Earth imagery can be used as a backdrop for viewing the wetlands digital data.
