VGeoTours gets you close to the geology that matters. Through the world’s best technology and dedicated staff, we create virtual worlds for geologists to explore, learn, and perform research. We bring remote mountains so close that you can almost touch the fossils.
We aren’t just a pretty website. Our library of 3D outcrops, orthomosaics, movies, and photographs are a rich resource for research and learning. Most files are georeferenced, and can be imported into your favorite software, either GIS based, geology platforms or photography where you can measure and analyse sometimes to within a few centimeters.
You don’t need to wonder what's at the top anymore. Ever been standing at the bottom of a cliff and speculating about whats above you? For the first time, the entire outcrop is available in detail from base to summit. Our drones capture the entire vertical face of a mountain, allowing you to see and measure the strata right to the peak, up close.
We bring the mountain to you. We know what it's like to go on a geological field trip. Pay a trip fee, take time out of your busy work schedule for a fixed date that’s not all that convenient, pay for a flight, room, food, travel to the remote or distant location, hope the weather holds and the bugs don’t bite. Then when you leave, you have a nice guidebook and a few photos to show for it. With VGeoTours, you can have the training and do the science when and where you want for a price that beats a field trip.
The company was founded in the summer of 2016 by 4 entrepreneurs with backgrounds in Aviation, UAV photography, and Geology. We love to be outside, scrambling cliffs, and flying UAVs, doing our best to capture the beauty and detail of some of the worlds most important geological features. If we don’t answer the phone, we are probably out flying a mountain.
