Field Excursion Software Package Do you have a 3D model of an outcrop or landscape that you would like to explore in a user-friendly interface and share with students and/or research collaborators? Our upcoming software package can make this possible.
We are assembling a software package that will permit users without game-development experience to combine their own 3D models with our new geoscience-specific analysis tools – to quickly produce 3D virtual field experiences for public outreach, undergraduate education, and shared scientific visualization. This website will host instructions and our Github link (to our software package download) for creating your own field excursion.
Our pipeline: 1) Take your 3D model; 2) download Unity 3D for free; 3) import our package of geology tools; and 4) share your own field excursion with students and fellow researchers
We intend on teaching a few short courses in 2021 which will instruct you step-by-step how to build your own virtual field experience to share with others. If you would be interested in such a short course, fill out the Google Form which can be accessed at the link below.
