Augmented Reality in Paleonology, Botany, Biology and Other Life Sciences

Paleontology, botany, biology, and other life sciences invite exploration with augmented reality. By analyzing the data from ground-penetrating radar, for example, and projecting a model over the dig site, paleontologists can best decide how best to retrieve fossils from underground. Consider how field studies could change when students are able to call up information about plants and animals they are observing and see it alongside the specimen—taking measurements, perhaps, or comparing a juvenile with a stored image of an adult.
