Project description

Argo3D project has fundings from the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (www.miur.gov.it): “Agreement University of Milan Bicocca – Consortium Cometa for the evaluation of leading-edge interactive technologies for improving teaching and popularization of science”.

The novelty we propose is devoted to the creation of a digital platform for the visualization and navigation of terrestrial and seafloor environment that will allow us to disseminate knowledge in GeoScience as never done before.

Data in the form of imagery and topographic surface models taken from airborne and submarine remotely operated drones will be used to create virtual reality models that can be used interactively within an innovative 3D Lab. Thanks to VR environment, students and teachers will be able to collaborate in a virtually-reconstructed ambient that represents real “geological” places on Earth.
