Using Satellite Observations through Augmented Reality (USOAR) Experience*
Using real time and/or near real time satellite imagery and computer visualizations, the USOAR Experience engages the participant in a view of Space to Earth from a virtual Geoscience and Remote Sensing Orbiting Laboratory space platform orbiting Planet Earth. Participants are able to interact with Geoscience datasets and imagery at their fingertips as collected through Earth Orbiting Satellites and other visual media. Earthbound investigators can contribute in-situ data providing ground validation … the Earth to Space perspective.
The USOAR Experience requires Oculus Rift goggles for the augmented reality experience, however participants are able to engage in a 2-D experience using the Web Player and a mouse.
Download the Unity Web Player. Using your mouse, click on any button to navigate through the USOAR Experience.
