WebVRGIS: WebGIS based interactive online 3D virtual community
2013 (English)In: Proceedings of 2013 International Conferenceon Virtual Reality and Visualization (ICVRV2013), 14-15 September 2013, Xi'an, Shaanxi, China, 2013Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper we present a WebVRGIS basedInteractive Online 3D Virtual Community which is achievedbased on WebGIS technology and web VR technology. It is Multi-Dimensional(MD) web geographic information system (WebGIS)based 3D interactive online virtual community which is a virtualreal-time 3D communication systems and web systems developmentplatform. It is capable of running on a variety of browsers.In this work, four key issues are studied: (1) Multi-source MDgeographical data fusion of the WebGIS, (2) scene combinationwith 3D avatar, (3) massive data network dispatch, and (4) multiuseravatar real-time interactive. Our system is divided into threemodules: data preprocessing, background management and frontend user interaction. The core of the front interaction module ispackaged in the MD map expression engine 3GWebMapper andthe free plug-in network 3D rendering engine WebFlashVR. Wehave evaluated the robustness of our system on three campus ofOcean University of China(OUC) as a testing base. The resultsshows high efficiency, easy to use and robustness of our system.
