Virtual Forest Tours

Usted está aquí

Field trips are essential in didactics in forestry. Unfortunaltely, problems like accesibility, climatic conditions, class size, budget, etc. make it impracticable to develop  an complete forest field trip program during the ordinary couses. The forest virtual tour program develops a set of virtual tours as an adjunct to placement field courses. The virtual tours are formed around online interactive forest walkthrougs in real forest realities. You can freely navigate through linked panoramas and are invited to deepen in the virtual forest world.
