The current region map on the Edinburgh-hosted facilities is available live here, and a snapshot as in early October 2013 is shown here…

Openvue Grid [Unlabelled Version]

Vue also maintains a number of regions on the publicly accessible OSGrid which offers free avatars to members of the OpenSim community, and which can be used by anyone to get an avatar by which they can visit the Openvue grid via the “Hypergrid”. Connection details and viewer recommendations are on this connection page.

Vue regions on OSGrid

Both Openvue grid and the Vue regions on OSGrid have a hypergrid jump related region for hopping between grid and finding your way round called “Vue-Port” and an “OpenVCE” region which is built for OpenVCE.net style collaboration and uses the freely available open source “OpenVCE” OpenSim Archive (OAR) as a basis for the facilities.
