QuickTime Movies of Magilligan Dunes
To view these you need to have Apple's QTPlayer - if you do not have this installed on your computer, you can download it free from www.apple.com/quicktime/download These 'movies' have been optimised for the web and so should take no longer than a couple of minutes to download.
These QuicktimeVR movies allow a virtual experience of the environment. A movie of the environment is constructed which can then be navigated using the mouse and the mouse button. You can look up and down and scan around by 360 degrees by holding down the mouse button (Mac) or left mouse button (PC) and moving the cursor to the edge of the screen in the direction that you wish to move. You can also zoom in using the shift key and the control key can be used in the same way to zoom out. If you wish to change the size of the image, you can click and drag on the bottom right hand corner of the image to make it as big or small as you want. Alternatively go to Movie on the menu bar at the top of the screen and select Double Size.
Follow the links in the diagram below to explore the dunes.
