Virtual Walks

Virtual Walk videos using the ‘Transition Time-lapse’ method

Virtual walks have been created for a Wildlife Trust:

In my work as a volunteer for Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, one of my roles is to create Virtual Walk videos for the ‘Transforming the Trent Valley’ project. These walks are created with different audiences in mind and to satisfy different, often conflicting, requirements meaning that compromises have had to be made. Below I list a couple of these:

  • The virtual walks should give an introduction to the landscape and be accessible to those who are unable to visit the locations – these people could use a range of equipment such as laptops, desktops computers or tablet devices.
  • Theses virtual walks must be useful on location so they act as a guide – this means they must be small for prompt downloads often in locations with poor mobile connections. Obviously this means they would be viewed on smartphones which may be in either landscape or portrait mode. This has showed some limitations of the current technologies!

This is the unbranded version (on my hosting site) as at September 2021 with a Virtual Walk around Fradley Junction Pool. You can see the branded version on the TTTV Youtube channel:

Below is one of two Virtual Walk videos at Branston Leas Nature Reserve. This is an unbranded version done for the ‘Transforming the Trent Valley’ project (see the Volunteering page for more information). The branded version can be seen on the TTTV Youtube channel here:
