GeoXplorer is an Earth and Planetary Science application. The user can view a variety of photogrammetric models of geological outcrops from around the world. Most of these can be viewed in full 1:1 scale and so can be explored as if the user is really there, as well as reduced to 1:10 scale for a better overview. There is also the option to view other planetary bodies (Moon and Mars) and eventually there'll be outcrops and DEMs to view for notable locations. The dev scripts and complete documentation are available at https://github.com/martinjpratt/GeoXplorer - Brand new upload so likely a whole bunch of bugs Voice commands: "Compass" brings up strike-and-dip tool and places it at the Gaze hit location on the model "Ruler" brings up the measurement tool and places it at the Gaze hit location on the model "Measure" places the other end of the measurement tool "Remove" hides the strike-and-dip or measurement tools "Fetch" on the object stage, if the model appears in front of the menu, say fetch to tag-along the menu and move it in to a more accessible possition. "Fix" fixes the menu into its current position Airtap commands: Planets can be rotated Icons that turn red can be clicked Teleportations can be achieved by airtap-and-hold on a model
What's new in this version
Version 2.0.3 There have been a number of bug fixes and additions. Primarily, is the association with a new Azure storage database called GeoBase (in development). 1. HiRISE DTM models from Mars. From uahirise.org models have been decimated for HoloLens optimization. Options to view either satellite or color altimetry images. 2. Context Stage. Displays a 3D DEM of the surrounding region of the outcrop model ON EARTH ONLY! Satellite imagery from Mapbox can be merged with geologic information from Macrostrat to provide more information about the outcrop. 3. Museum Samples. A collection of hand samples from Washington University in St. Louis's Rudolf collection. 4. Sharing (BETA). This still uses old-school Sharing Service and has been known to crash periodically. Allows an instructor to select models that then appear for all users on the Spawning Stage that is accessible through a menu button.
