Real world-based immersive Virtual Reality for research, teaching and communication in volcanology
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
embedded in the VR environment allow the user to map polygons, lines, point features, measure orientation, dip, inclination, azimuth, area, thickness and even take virtual photographs. Using three examples of volcanic areas with different geological features, we demonstrate the potential of our approach to allow users to be able to virtually map and measure remotely, and to collect data for research and teaching. Our approach is of paramount importance also for outreach, as it allows non-specialist audiences (e.g. common citizens) to experience and appreciate highly complex volcanic features through customised, hands-on immersive VR tools.
