3-d Virtual Image Library

This Virtual Image Library allows you to view odonates on-line like never before. You can zoom in, rotate and pan around on each image. There are two different ways to do view the image. You can click on the thumbnail and it will be displayed within your browser on OdonataCentral. Instructions on how to manipulate the image will appear on that page. Alternatively, you can click on any of the download links to open up the image locally on your computer. The advantage to this is that you can then increase the size of the Quicktime window that the image is displayed in. Note images range from 1 (small) to 15 MB (large) in size. You must have QuickTime installed on your computer to view the images locally. Please note that QuickTime removed the icon for panning from their viewer when you open the image locally on your computer. To move the object around, you must use the short-cut keys (Option on MAC and CTRL +ALT on PC). You can download a free version of QuickTime at this link.

We are working on expanding this library, so please check back frequently for new additions.
