Virtually There is the front-end to a whole project called
MOAS (Museum Object Acquisition System). The system was developed
for the Otago Museum by a group of third year Bachelor of
Information Technology students from Otago Polytechnic to
allow the museum to digitally capture virtually any object
using a custom built capture device.
Once the objects have been captured, information about them
is stored in a database and is displayed here, using the Virtually
There viewer that allows a full horizontal 360° rotation.
The Virtually There Virtual Tour is another part of the project
that aims to give the public an insight into how the museum
looks after and stores the huge number of artifacts and specimens
in it's storage area.
