Fully Immersive
Virtual Field Trips

We are currently developing interactive virtual field trips across the globe by utilizing aerial videography, 360° panoramic photos and videos, and ultra-high resolution gigapixel imagery. The field trips will allow first hand access for students and the public to geologic sites and the researchers who work there. Below are examples from our first virtual field trip Buried Ice created by Keith Heyward.
