3D GIS Integrated with VR Wearable: More Immersive Virtual Geo-space

By [email protected] - 20th May 2016 - 13:19

The perfect combination of SuperMap 3D GIS and Virtual Reality (VR) wearables, like Oculus RIFT helmet, has enabled a new era of 3D GIS with smart perception. When you walk into lifelike 3D models built by Oblique Photograph Modeling and Building Information Modeling (BIM), are you able to distinguish between what are virtual and what are real? VR wearables allow users to experience the possible or impossible situations in the reality at a very low cost. As a revolutionary new medium, VR allows GIS users to interact with 3D scenes, which ends the awkward situation that 3D GIS applications can only be displayed by 2D screen. As a good medium to express the sense of reality and virtual environment of 3D GIS, VR has already amazed and enchanted GIS users. What’s more, SuperMap GIS 8C products now support VR wearables.
