Pando: The World’s Tree A Virtual Land Art Installation


Pando’s enormous scale and remote location make it a challenging subject to document, comprehend and fully appreciate – even for those who study and oversee the tree. In order to promote awareness about the tree and people appreciate the scale of the tree, Lead Photographer of the Pando Photographic Survey, Lance Oditt, is working to take the land Pando calls home to the world. Using 360 degree cameras and LiDar imaging, Lance will overlay the land mass Pando calls home on to locations throughout the world where people can experience the tree and walk its 106 acres via “virtual” hikes using their mobile devices.
