NMBU's VR-Lab and UC Berkeley in a new publication

Graduate students in landscape architecture and planning from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) and University of California, Berkeley (UCB), conducted both field and VR audits at sites throughout San Francisco and Oslo. Norwegian and American students were able to audit sites in both cities thanks to student exchange visits in the spring of 2015. In addition to the design students, the use of Google Forms and GSV facilitated the enlisting of additional student and non-student auditors, many of whom had never visited the sites in person. Virtual audits took place at NMBU’s VR lab facilities, using projections of selected GSV scenes on a concave, panoramic screen. The new publication is available from this link.
