Increasing public awareness with three dimensions (2.5 dimensions). Visualizations can let people explore places that they may never visit in person. Three-dimensional imagery of the offshore coral monitoring sites as well as terrestrial monitoring sites managed by the National Park Service (NPS) and other agencies can be used by park personnel and as part of public outreach efforts and education activities. Increasing public awareness about park-related environmental issues is particularly important. Past research suggests that the degree of familiarity that the public has with the park's ecosystem may influence the actual economic value that the public places on preserving this resource.
