Virtual Exploration

Two of GEODE’s GigaPan team (Ron Schott and Callan Bentley) contributed GigaPan imagery to the online “virtual exploration” map for PBS NOVA’s new “Making North America” series:
This map allows users to explore key sites in the geology of the North American continent through video and GigaPans.
The three-part series is hosted by Kirk Johnson, the Sant Director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History, in Washington, DC.

 

GOOGLE PLUTO!

Thanks to the NASA New Horizons mission, we now have spectacular new surface imagery of Pluto. Click here to download a KMZ file that you can open in Google Earth. It contains the highest resolution surface imagery of Pluto from the New Horizons Flyby in 2015. Note that it is a ground overlay on Google Earth so the Google Earth ruler, terrain, atmosphere, water, sunlight, etc., should be turned off.
