Project Description:

For centuries, the Amazon rain forest was one of the last great wildernesses on planet Earth, where isolated tribes and untold species of animals lived undisturbed by outsiders. But today the Amazon stands close to a tipping point, as rampant deforestation combines with climate change to threaten the rain forest’s very existence. Now you can be a witness to the crisis unfolding in the Amazon with TIME’s “Inside the Amazon: The Dying Forest” AR (augmented reality) experience. “Inside the Amazon: the Dying Forest” is available for iOS and Android devices in the TIME Immersive app. This story was supported by the Pulitzer Center. The Emerging Technologies Lab supported the post-production for the photogrammetry models.
