Our virtual field trips allow you to explore the fascinating and spectacular world of various geomorphological landscapes. Look all around and zoom-in on features of interest and observe how the landscape changes from one location to the next.

Sure, there is no substitute for real fieldwork, but this is not always possible.  Virtual Field Trips in Geomorphology supports class-based teaching. It can also be used by anyone wishing to explore these environments for themselves.

Virtual field trips are an alternative way to study an area. With this tool, anyone can visit any point of interest, rather than actually visiting it. It is more than simply presenting images and slides. You have the ability to view photos, videos, as well as satellite images, and from different aspects, both in two and three dimensions, and literally visit any place in the globe. It is very easy to use, and it is accessible from any device with an internet connection, such a personal computer, a tablet or a mobile phone.

Flexible use for schools
and universities

It is an easy way to learn about any place of interest and understand the principles of geology, tectonics, geomorphology and so on.
You can also get prepared when planning an actual field trip, and choose which sites to visit.

Supporting, not replacing,
real fieldwork

Virtual fieldwork has a role to play in supporting class-based learning, teaching and assessment.

It can be used in many ways, including the support of “real” fieldwork for which there is no substitute. However, they offer a valuable indirect field experience, including the chance to “visits” places, landmarks and geological formations that are not easily accessible, to understand the geological evolution of a study area, to construct geological and geomorphological maps and much more..

virtual fieldwork

Virtual field trips to several geomorphological landscapes – whenever you want! Virtual field trips are particularly useful when a place is very far away and not accessible. Moreover, meteorological conditions such as rain, cold or hot weather do not pose a problem and nor does the cost of transportation.
