This creative work is a virtual flyover animation of the Murray River created as part of the Water on Tap? exhibition shown at the Albury Art Gallery 14 Oct - 12 Dec 2010. The 20 minute flyover follows the Murray River from near its source in Kosciuszko National Park almost 500km to Barmah near Echuca-Moama. The animation gives a unique perspective of a stretch of the Murray River and the surrounding landscape. We used Google Earth Pro as a readily available medium to create a realistic bird's eye view based on recent satellite imagery and a digital terrain model of the earth. The animation itself provides a publicly accessible overview of a stretch of the Murray River, highlighting different perspectives of river and landscape use and management. The process of creating the animation provides a valuable contribution to CSU's expertise in visualising and exploring spatial data for environmental and social science research and this project has already led to the incorporation of flyover animations in other current CSU research projects.
