Assel Valley wind farm # 3

Below are thumbnail links to all of the photomontages and wireframe diagrams for the proposed Assel Valley wind farm. Please let this page finish loading before clicking stuff! Some of the labelling on the top left of the images is somewhat misleading - the term 'Photograph of Existing View' is used on the 'after' images when used as a photomontage of the expected view. I am also not convinced that the scale (or 'zoom' level) used on some of the wireframe diagrams is consistent with the depicted view. Still, I can only reproduce what the developers submit....

Each of the non-wireframe images is approximately 2MB in size and the wireframe images are about 200k - so, overall I think these images are a lot more accessible.

To view the photomontages, first select a viewpoint in the selector box titled 'Select a viewpoint'. A series of thumbnail images will then appear for the selected viewpoint. Simply single left click on the required thumbnail until a grey rotating ball appears on the screen (which indicates the file is downloading) and let the image finish loading. You may need to single left click three times the first time you try to view an image on each page visit - thereafter one click should be sufficient to initiate the viewer.

Then if you want to zoom in, move the mouse over the image and click the X icon in the top left of the image. To zoom in further (or zoom out), use the scroll wheel on your mouse. Whilst you have the image zoomed in, you can pick it up with the left mouse button and move it around. When you have finished viewing, click the X in the top left hand corner once more, and then the x in the top right hand corner.

If you want to simply download the image file, just double click on the appropriate thumbnail.
