Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands 
Something a little different this time… 

Whilst in the Solomon Islands in 2003, I managed to take a couple of hundred digital photographs of facades of buildings in the main streets of Honiara (Guadalcanal) and Gizo (Western Province) in the hope that I might one day have the opportunity to make a "virtual Honiara" and a "virtual Gizo". My return to sunny Queensland coincided with the deployment of the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands (RAMSI) by the Australian Govenment. My photographs proved valuable to Australia’s Defence Imagery and Geospatial Organisation (DIGO). I secured a number of maps which I turned into HTML pages with hyperlinks to all the photographs to help, both in Australia and in the Solomon Islands in command and control, reconnaissance and surveillance. 

The photographs were supplied to DIGO at full resolution but "webbable" versions can be found on the VizMAP website at Honiara and Gizo.

Sample images from the hyperlinked maps are displayed here. An active internet connection is required to be able to view these images.
