Employing the latest photorealistic landscape visualization technology, Pennsylvania State University, the Smithsonian Institution and two major Chesapeake cultural institutions will team up to develop a powerful new web-based attraction focused on the 400th anniversary of John Smith's "Voyages of Exploration" through the Chesapeake region. The project will give computer users in schools, homes, and libraries around the country--and the world--a chance to see vibrant and realistic images of the Chesapeake environment that so impressed Smith on his 1607-09 journeys and then compare them with images of the Bay environment today. This exciting interactive experience will allow visitors to track the progress of Smith's journeys, learn about the Native American inhabitants he encountered along the way and explore the dramatic changes in the Bay.

Amount Funded: $111,987.00

Start Date: 09/15/2005
