Virtual Tour will enable you to follow a route through the Princess
of Wales Conservatory. By viewing a series of 360 degree
panoramas, an interactive tour of the ten climatic zones of
the conservatory will reveal images and botanical
information of the plants living inside - through a
combination of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and
multimedia visualisation techniques.
The Virtual Tour was created as a collaborative
project between the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and the
Department of Geomatic Engineering, at University College
Jon Gower designed the application as his thesis for
the M.Sc. Degree in Geographic Information Science (GIS), at UCL,
working closely with Justin Moat, Spatial Information
Scientist at the GIS Laboratory, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
