Vizerra is an application that allows you to virtually visit some places of interest and historic sites. You can “travel,” for example, to Machu Picchu, the Lost City of the Inca, without leaving home. To make the models, designers collect great amounts of information about the sites—historic reference, drawings, descriptions, etc. Then a photographer goes there to capture textures of walls and monuments. Satellite shots provide the necessary topographic data. And the result is a detailed and accurate 3D model of the object.
Vizerra interface is designed so that the skin does not distract your attention from the view. Semi-transparent navigation elements and info modules enable you to easily find your bearings in 3D space.
Each model comes with an encyclopaedic piece that tells you about the region, its history and culture, and includes photographs, audio and video files.
There is an interactive map that shows all places you can visit using the program.
Vizerra developers say that within the next year, there will be 30 more 3D models, and after that at least 3 new objects will be added each month. Conveniently, there is a list of contents that you can sort by different attributes to see the latest or the most fascinating places you wish to set your virtual foot in.
If you’d like to take a walk around the Lost City of Inca, Taj Mahal, Tatev Monastery in Armenia, or go to other historic and cultural attractions, you should download an application client from vizerra.com.
