Title: Virtual Field Trip
Url: http://quest.arc.nasa.gov/vft/
Publisher: Ames Research Center
Description: This immersive multimedia application was developed to provide students with the ability to virtually explore areas on Earth that have been identified as analog sites to regions on Mars. Users zoom in from a global view down to a surface view of a site, where they are placed into a 360 degree spherical virtual reality surface panorama. They can navigate around the site selecting various objects and listening to scientists to learn more about how and why the site was chosen, how it relates to Mars, and why it is of interest. The environment consists of various linked 360 degree spherical stitched virtual reality environments, 3D based layered environments, global fly downs, as well as compressed streaming video files for each area of research. The software is downloadable as compressed files for PC or Mac.
