Research Vessel Virtual Tour - RRS James Cook
Explore one of the world’s most advanced research vessels from the bridge to the engine room. Head out on to the deck and take in the virtual sea air, and then crawl into one of the lifeboats. And along the way you can find out about the labs and equipment on board that enable marine scientists to study and measure the ocean in some of the most remote and challenging environments on the planet.
How to use this resource
The tour uses photographic imaging and 360° scanning technology to enable you to take immersive journeys through the ship to get a feel for what life is like on board. You can zoom in and out and move the image around for a full 360° view and explore hotspots on each deck. Use the icons at the bottom left of the screen (on desktop) to select your view and how you want to navigate. Choose to follow the camera as it guides you around, or take control and explore every corner. The models also work on mobile devices and offer a VR experience using Google Cardboard.
