TamAR Augmented Reality app
Have you ever wondered what lives beneath the water in the Tamar estuary?
Now you can tour the Tamar estuary in 3D using augmented and virtual reality to explore the habitats, flora and fauna, and issues affecting the health of the estuary. You will find swimming seals, flying eagles, big-bellied seahorses, and fish hiding in the kelp forests and sponge gardens.
TamAR is an augmented reality app version of the 2012 report card produced for the Tamar River estuary in Tasmania, Australia. The report card describes the health of the estuary and provides a grading from A to F for five zones along the 70 km estuary.
