Gallery of VLT Events: VLT@John Hope Gateway (RBGE)

The Chalara Action Plan for Scotland Awareness-raising programme included developing public exhibition resources. An  interactive model of woodlands in NW Scotland was used to present in the Virtual Landscape Theatre scenarios of spread and potential impacts of Chalara (ash) dieback. The exhibit was presented at the John Hope Gateway, RBGE (August, 2013), and the touring exhibition was presented at the Satrosphere Science Centre, Aberdeen.

More background to Chalara (ash) dieback, the events, and images from the virtual reality model are available here. Information about the virtual reality model is available here. The model can be downloaded from the Zenodo repository for use on a PC or with a virtual reality headset.

Read more in a paper presented at GISRUK 2015, University of Leeds on Visualisation of spread of Chalara ash dieback for raising public awareness and responsible woodland access.
