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