Navigation by query in virtual worlds

Alex van Ballegooij, Anton Eliéns
2001 Proceedings of the sixth international conference on 3D Web technology - Web3D '01  
We present the concept of navigation by query and discuss the requirements for an implementation for a VRML based environment.  ...  In order to remedy this situation we propose navigation by query. The user interface for 3D virtual environments usually allows users to 'walk' around in the virtual world.  ...  Luckily the blaxxun VRML browser offers built in support to check the intersection of a line with the geometry present in a scene.  ...

Real-time interactive virtual tour on the World Wide Web (WWW)

Sanghyuk Yoon, Hai-jung Chen, Tom Hsu, Ilmi Yoon, Simone Santini, Raimondo Schettini
2003 Internet Imaging V  
Traditional approach, such as VRML, requires labor-intensive 3D modeling process, high bandwidth and computation power especially for photo-realistic virtual scenes.  ...  But, these image-based approaches may require special cameras or effort to take panoramic views and provide only one fixed-point look-around and zooming in-out rather than 'walk around', that is a very  ...  Therefore, proper user guidance such as mini maps becomes an important feature for pleasant navigation as easily seen in many 3D games like Quake.  ...

Geovisualisation for Planning Support Systems [chapter]

Bin Jiang, Bo Huang, Vit Vasek
2003 Advances in Spatial Science  
We report several prototypes of geovisualisation for exploration and collaboration in the context of urban and environmental planning.  ...  Planning support systems can be defined as spatial decision support systems, and they consist of three important components, namely: data, models, and geovisualisation (Klosterman 1999).  ...  Acknowledgements This paper presents part of our Virtual Planning Studio project, supported by the Swedish Research Council For Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning, and GIS Institute  ...
