Panoramas and Land Conservation
For years Land Trusts and Conservancies use conventional photography and words to show lands they are trying to save or have saved. While the best photo can have a powerful impact, it isn't interactive, nor does it show the complete picture.
The next level of photography, 360 degree panoramas, also called virtual reality (VR), immerses the viewer in a location. With VR, you can pan around, look up or down, and even zoom in to examine details. A virtual tour links multiple VRs together using a map to allow exploration of a whole park, preserve, or threatened area.
When site visitors explore natural places using virtual reality, they experience a greater feeling for what it is like to be there, increasing their sense of connection to the land. Consequently visitors are more likely to understand the value of preserving land, and want to do something to help.
VR is becoming a popular tool for showing the natural world. We look forward to helping your land conservation or preservation cause communicate better by using VR.
