Spatial Analysis of Terrain in Virtual Reality

IEEE VR Workshop 2012

Rolf Westerteiger, Andreas Gerndt, Bernd Hamann, and Hans Hagen

“We extend an existing Virtual Reality terrain visualization framework to support spatial analysis tasks for geoscientific purposes. Interactive measurement of height profiles is used as an example application to demonstrate the efficacy of the approach. In this application, virtual reality technology enables superior perception of profile line localization with respect to terrain features.”
