Virtual field trips: enhancing student 3-D visualization and access to geological field sites

The project team will be generating a digital map of a site on Manitoulin Island. The immediate impact of this project will be to bring the field into the classroom, especially for students who may not enrol in the field camp courses because of economic constraints or physical disabilities. The project will also support the teaching of 3-D visualization in upper year courses. The long-term impact of this project will be capacity building for the use of 3-D visualization across the department.
