Science of geohazards in terrestrial and marine environments
There is a demand for highly-skilled professionals in the environmental and geoscience sectors, who can be innovative, creative and particular skills in advanced 3D spatial analysis, multi-disciplinarity, data management and informatics, mathematical and numerical skills, fieldwork and observations skills, earth observation and image analysis. The aim of this project is to help students develop these key skills through a trans-European cooperation between 13 academic, research and industrial institutions in the UK, Greece, Italy and France.
Blackgang Landslide 3D Model
Interactive 3d model of the Chale-Blackgang Landslide from the Isle of Wight. Using photography collected in 2017 using a fixed wing drone, this model was generated using photogrammetry techniques.
This is a preview of one of the sites that can be visited in VR using the 3DTeLC Software and an Oculus VR headset.
The 3DTeLC software allows the user to experience a wide range of geological and geomorphological sites in virtual reality. Developed for the project, this software is a powerful tool which allows the user to navigate 3D models and map their features in VR. The software is open source and can be downloaded directly from the site, along with ready to use 3D models. Requires a compatible Windows PC and Oculus VR headset.
Below are some of the many 3D VR models that can be explored using the 3DTeLC software. All are available through the links below. Open source, requires 3DTeLC software and Oculus VR headset. Teaching guides and accompanying activities are available for most sites.
