The PRD has been undergoing an economic take-off, however, at the same time, its environmental quality has been rapidly deteriorating. Field visits to the PRD would be ideal for students to explore different environmental problems. Unfortunately, organising field visits would involve lots of manpower and resources. As such, this project developed a web-based "Virtual Field Visits to the Pearl River Delta" in order to allow students to visit different field sites via the web. This teaching aid enabled students to understand the landscape, population, industries and current environmental problems of the major cities of the PRD simply by browsing through the website.
