  • Initial StrategySeed the community with basic applicationsStereo Pairs WallView and ViewerVRML ImmersaviewWalkabout Walking mapsIdentify the geoscience Killer VisEarthquake hypocentersStereo mapsStereo photographyGeologic cores3

  • Stereo MapsCan be created from paper maps, imagery or GIS dataCan be very high resolutionCreated using off-the-shelf softwareBest when using the exact same map the students use

    4

  • Stereo PairsNatural extension to traditional field photography Two consumer digital camerasOften used for fieldtrip preparation and debriefingEasiest material to produce5

  • Walking a MapExamine the map from withinChange the theme as you walkMapsAerial PhotographySatellite ImageryField notesCan be used to augment fieldwork

    6

  • 3D Objects7

  • Anaglyph MapsTopography without contoursNo crashingInexpensiveWill work next yearCan be used in the field8

  • Continuing Software StrategyIdentify Earth Science apps that require visCore interpretation3D MappingSeduce the key software vendor into supporting GeoWallRead: ESRIInclude other key technologies IVS topographic visualizationMapServer for web based GIS deliveryUse standard software to unusual applicationsPowerpoint for stereo photography
