I flew over Iceland! Main emphasis of the flight was to observe in the late summer the vegetation, i.e. carbon production in North East Iceland. It was part of my Ph.D. study in University of Iceland. It was made thanks to my amazing supervisors. We were flying on Cessna 185. I measured the track of the flight with my Garmin 60CS GPS receiver. Below you can see the map of the flight. Red line shows the flight from Reykjavæík to Egilsstaðir where after refueling we flew back to Reykjavík seen on the orange line. The blue lines defines the catchment boundaries of the rivers I studied in my Ph.D. research.

Iceland is the most developed country in the World without vector data (roads, points of interest, etc.) available in Google Maps. Google Map Maker is a great idea to create user contributed map of Iceland as I've already wrote in Let's map Iceland finally . And now Google Map Maker's maps of Iceland are available on Google Maps. Thanks to all the people who contributed their time for this wonderful initiative to bring finally free map of Iceland. You might need detailed free maps of Iceland for Google Earth .
