The geoVR – virtual reality exhibition
What is geoVR?
The geoVR is a new virtual reality concept that allows audiences of different ages and abilities to explore the history of the Earth through multi-dimentional pictures, illustrations, sounds, animations and interactivity. It’s exploring the geopark in a completely new and innovative way, accessible for everyone!
Background for the project
The geoVR is a group of projects run by Magma Geopark before and during the development of the DoubleVR Content Management system by Doublethink, a private ICT Company. The geoVR project, started in 2013 and was funded by several sources: European Commission, Rogaland County, UNESCO Norwegian Commission and Nordic Atlantic Cooperation Funds supported Magma Geopark in testing, adapting and launching the most innovative Content Management System for virtual reality ever made.
