3D Information Presentation, 3D Interaction
The goal of this project is to develop a virtual environment for the interactive visual exploration of Saudi Arabia. In contrast to virtual globe viewers like Google Earth, this environment will allow the user to look both above and underneath the earth surface in an integrated way. It will, thus, provide interactive means for the visual exploration of 3D geological structures and dynamic seismic processes as well as atmospheric processes and effects or built or planned infrastructure. The specific techniques required to support such functionality will be integrated into a generic infrastructure for visual computing, allowing essentially all KAUST Research Institutes to use parts of this functionality in other applications. In particular, we expect close impact on and links to the KAUST 3D Modelling and Visualisation Centre and the KAUST Computational Earth Sciences Centre.
