<p>Gigapan technologies present new interactive opportunities for people to learn and share information about their<br>local environments. They can be used to look across spatial scales, enrich multimedia journals, and augment digital<br>collections. Herein we describe initial efforts and experiences in sharing information about plants, geology and<br>landscapes in both formal and informal education settings. Our diverse examples suggest ways that current Gigapan<br>technologies can be improved and linked to other technologies and educational programs.</p>
