Google Photospheres

Google photospheres

The ISG has started creating photospheres using Google technology to immerse viewers into iguana habitat. A photosphere is a 360-degree image that users can rotate themselves. The effect is a sort of virtual reality, letting users get a complete view as if they were standing at a point within iguana habitat and looking all around them.

 

Photospheres of the habitat of several species are now available – see our Google+ site

On the Google page, hover over the photo icons to get more information about the location of each photo.
