Site DescriptionThe Stavkirke (Church of Staves) is based on drawings of one built in Borgund, Norway in 1150 AD. Skilled local craftsmen, under the direction of head carpenters, John Herschberger, Dale Bjarnarson, John began laying the foundation of mortared beach stone and cement in 1992. The original project of the Stavkirke is attributed to the Reverend James Reiff, a pastor on the Island in the early 1980s who felt such a structure would reflect the immigrant influence on the Island. Sister Bay architect, Pat Mangan offered a personal interest of stav history to the project, made the drawings based on the Borgund stavkirke and the list of necessary materials. The Stavkirke is a vital part of the ministry of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church
Project DescriptionPhotogrammetry, 1041 images captured (in triplets at differing iso ranges) with Nikon D600 dslr. Data derivatives also include two interior and exterior CaveCams, full 360 degree stereo surround for use in virtual reality systems. These images can cover any field of view, including 360 degree by 180 degree spherical panoramas. Two photographic cylinders are created with identical dimensions, capturing the perspective as seen from each eye position. When these cylinders are mapped to a spherical surface, full stereo in all directions is achieved. This technique allows photographic imaging to create the virtual environment itself. The complete stereo image that is created by this technique can be viewed in any direction that is supported by the virtual reality system design.
