The Virtual Outcrop Tour is an immersive application for collaborative discussions of outcrop data sets. It supports dynamic terrain rendering and the integration of large outcrop data sets, typically obtained by LIDAR scans. Geologists can interact with the system using gestures and speech. It also features out-of-core volume rendering of large seismic data sets.

The Virtual Outcrop Tour runs under the Windows operating system and it uses the following software packages itself:

The Virtual Outcrop Tour is available for the members of the VRGeo Consortium.
