This exhibition presented by the FOR-SITE Foundation in partnership with the National Park Service, the Presidio Trust and the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, can now be seen online. Through a partnership with the media technology company, Matterport, Home Land Security can be viewed in immersive 3D that captures the magic experienced by visitors during the course of the exhibit.
Matterport’s technology uses a patented camera to capture 3D and 2D images of an interior space. The camera rotates on a tripod that the user places around a room to capture every aspect of the space. Matterport’s proprietary software then stitches together all of this data to create one complete 3D mesh overlaid with high-definition images. These resulting Matterport Spaces are then ready for viewers to explore online via a web browser or through fully immersive VR headsets like Samsung's Gear VR.
Visitors can now revisit—or view for the first time—this once-in-a-lifetime installation of art in the historic military sites of Fort Scott, most open for the first time to the public. To fully enjoy the immersive experience of the 3D videos, line up the virtual circles so you can swoop over, step through, glide across, and zoom through the exhibits!
