New Forest satellite map

Explore the New Forest in detail with this high resolution satellite view!

The digital revolution allows us to zoom in on places from space and the Virtual Earth program has the New Forest National Park pretty well covered. If you need any guidance using the map, just follow the simple instructions in the column on the right. Enjoy!

[Mac users may need to use the Firefox web browser to view the map].

Going further afield

All of the UK (and beyond) can be accessed from this map, simply zoom right out and select your region from the map that appears.
Almost all of the UK is covered by high resolution satellite photographs, so feel free to explore beyond the New Forest National Park!
