Using photogrammetry I have digitized several mushrooms I’ve found on my travels, you can see them on this page, or see my Sketchfab gallery of mushrooms here. I started this collection of 3D models to help my friend Arian Farid, MS, a doctoral candidate at the University of South Florida studying Mycology. https://sketchfab.com/models/b7cb18f5927d4a73b0a7e95414c444ca https://sketchfab.com/models/fd144b8bc9684036968fea9e34f77e30
I went on vacation to see some old friends in the Netherlands and Belgium and used the ArcGIS Online Story Map Journal to make a travel diary to share with my friends and family. The story map has my photography, 3D models of items of interest on Sketchfab, and a few maps as well.
