Using VRML in construction industry applications
This paper describes initial research using the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML97) in construction industry applications. The modeling of steel structures and construction equipment as objects for inclusion in construction-site world models was studied. The ultimate goal is to provide three-dimensional web-based technologies for managing, accessing, and viewing construction project information. CR Categories and Subject Descriptors: I.3.6 [Computer Graphics]: Methodology and Techniques: Interaction techniques, standards; I.3.7 [Computer Graphics]: Three-Dimensional Graphics and Realism: Virtual reality; J.6 [Computer-Aided Engineering]: Computer-aided design (CAD) Additional Keywords and Phrases: VRML, virtual environments, computer-integrated construction, steel structures, construction equipment.
