Looking Down on Bali

Royal Geographical Society Allows Exploration of Bali from the Air Via its New Interactive Simulated Flight Singapore to Sydney


(6/15/2012)

Founded in 1830, The Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers is a world center for Geography - supporting research, education, fieldwork & expeditions, and promoting public engagement and informed enjoyment of our world.

The Society holds one of the world’s pre-eminent geographical collections including over a million maps, three thousand atlases, half a million photographs, 150,000 bound volumes and substantial collections of artifacts and artworks from around the world.

Flying from Singapore to Sydney Over Bali

The Royal Geographical Society has launched an innovative way of enlivening the flying experience in the creation of an interactive guide to air travellers covering various flights paths around the world.

[Hidden Journey Project] also includes a flight path from Singapore to Sydney, exploring some of the world’s most remote and spectacular landscapes in Southeast Asia and Australia. From the isolated reefs of the Timor Sea, to the horizontal waterfalls of Australia’s Buccaneer Archipelago, to the red sand dunes of the Simpson Desert the interactive guide covers an amazing diversity of people, places and landscapes.

Vast stretches of this flight path have seen no human influence at all, however others have been adapted and altered by the human inhabitants. Land reclamation in Singapore, rice terraces in Bali and the farmland in the Murray Darling Basin are but a few examples. Every country along this route also has its own colonial history: from the British in Singapore and Australia to the Dutch in Indonesia, each nation has left its mark on the landscape along the way.

The Royal Geographical Society is also working towards incorporating the Hidden Journeys geo entertainment onto moving maps available on aircraft in the future. When accomplished, thousands of people will learn about the fascinating parts of the earth that they fly over in real time!

After the jump you can have the astonishing experience of exploring the flight path from Singapore to Sydney, passing over Bali along the way, exploring the world at three different altitudes illustrated with inspiring photographs, paintings and informed descriptions of what you can recognize from the air.

Truly interactive, the Royal Geographical Society invites people living along the various flight paths included in their program to contribute images, enriching the experience via a participatory worldwide community.
