At the request of Bruce Miller in Belize I have added a 3d R object for that part of the world. The Modis Blue marble coverage is a bit coarse for this small country and the relief requires more vertical exaggeration, but quite nice results can still be obtained with a Landsat image, despite the cloud cover. The object can be loaded and visualized with the script below. The R object that is loaded is 3MB in size so Bruce may have a very long wait given the glacial speed of the Belizean internet.
This also gives now me a excuse to add a link to BERDS, the inspiring biodiversity database for Belize set up by Jan Meerman.
