PErfECT “Photogrammetry, gEnetics, Ecology for red coral ConservaTion”

 

From the project PErfECT, we release different outreach materials. These displays have a powerful attractiveness for dissemination toward the citizens because they offer the unique opportunity to explore the underwater realm in unprecedented details. Different technological approaches have been applied allowing to virtually visiting the red coral populations and to handle large-sized red coral colonies. For the very large orthophoto viewing which were obtained for the different red coral habitats, we used a museographic approach already experimented by Le Louvre. These kind of approaches allows the visualization of very high definition images and give the opportunity to the explore red coral colonies and its habitat in a completely new way.
