Three hundred sixty degree photography is an opportunity to present items in an interactive fashion. This is accomplished by using a rotating pedestal and any camera that can record video. The sample items below are from the collections of the Anthropology Department. They were found at a Ventura County site.
Using a mouse, the user can zoom in on the item, and move it around to discuss the details of the object. This brings the object to life in presentations, allowing faculty and students to examine fragile artifacts without concern for the well-being of often-fragile items.
