File Description:
Whale Island (Maori Name: Moutohora) is a small island located off the Bay of Plenty coast of New Zealand's North Island. It is located about 12 kilometers north of the town of Whakatane. A whaling station existed on the island during the 19th century. The 1.43 km island is a remnant of a complex volcano which has eroded, leaving two peaks. This is still an area of volcanic activity and there are hot springs on the island in Sulphur Valley, McEwans Bay, and Sulphur Bay.

This Hi Resolution scenery was created from a 0.25m pixel resolution Ortho-rectified Aerial mosaic owned by Environment Bay of Plenty (The Bay of Plenty Regional Council) and flown in 2007. The imagery has been slightly de-sampled for use in Flight Simulator X and utilizes the a custom hi resolution 5m Mesh derived from photogrammetry data off the photos. The textures are intended for summer daylight flying only, although due to the evergreen nature of New Zealand's native bush, the Islands appearance remains relatively constant throughout the year.
The island contains a small helicopter pad which is used for checking the various radio antennas on the Island. There is also a small Department of Conservation hut near the south western tip of the Island. These objects have been added from the FSX library of objects. Make sure to turn up your graphics sliders to make the most of this data! To find the Island fly north from Whakatane airport.
