  • Proposed Enhancements to the X3D Geospatial Component 

    McCann, Michael; Puk, Richard; Hudson, Alan; Melton, Rex; Brutzman, Don (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    The Geospatial Component of the X3D Standard suffers from some deficiencies that prevent its wider adoption. This paper addresses two of these deficiencies. The first problem is that in order to reduce spatial jitter content ...
  • WebScylla: A 3D Web Application to Visualise the Colonisation of an Artificial Reef 

    Francis, Benjamin T.; Stone, Robert J. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Scylla is Europe's first artificial reef and was created by the scuttling of a former Royal Navy frigate off the UK coast in Cornwall. As well as being a popular attraction for divers, the colonisation of the reef is of ...
  • X3D Earth Terrain-Tile Production Chain for Georeferenced Simulation 

    Yoo, Byounghyun; Brutzman, Don (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Broad needs for digital models of real environments such as 3D terrain or cyber cities are increasing. Many applications related to modeling and simulation require virtual environments constructed from real-world geospatial ...
  • 2LIP: Filling The Gap Between The Current And The Three-Dimensional Web 

    Jankowski, Jacek; Decker, Stefan (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Paradigm (2LIP), for designing simple yet interactive 3D web applications, an attempt to marry advantages of 3D experience with the advantages of the narrative structure of hypertext. The hypertext information, together ...
  • Virtual Rome: a FOSS approach to WEB3D 

    Calori, Luigi; Camporesi, Carlo; Pescarin, Sofia (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    The goal of VirtualRome project (www.virtualrome.it) is to provide a web-based infrastructure for distribution, collection, annotation and sharing over the web of 3D interactive content such as actual and reconstructed ...
  • Digital Oil and Gas Pipeline Visualization using X3D 

    Zhen-pei, Li; Ping, Li; Ming, Wu (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    With the development of oil and gas pipeline construction, management technology and information technology, it is highly desirable to create a visual oil and gas pipeline management system to improve pipeline management ...
  • Enterprise-level architecture for interactive web-based 3D visualization of geo-referenced repositories 

    Simoes, Bruno; Conti, Giuseppe; Piffer, Stefano; Amicis, Raffaele de (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Interoperability, interactivity and 3D visualization are three of the most important challenges related to Geographical Information Systems. In the last few years, research on interoperability has evolved from simple ...
  • ADML: A framework for representing inhabitants in 3D Virtual Worlds 

    Oyarzun, David; Ortiz, Amalia; Carretero, Maria del Puy; Gelissen, Jean; Garcia-Alonso, Alex; Sivan, Yesha (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Last years, a new fashion over Internet and computer networks has been established: the 3D virtual worlds. Reports about Future Internet predict virtual worlds will play a major role in the configuration of the future ...
  • Interactive stories on the net: a model and an architecture for X3D worlds 

    Carnielli, Efrem; Pittarello, Fabio (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    This work discusses a model and an architecture for interactive stories to be displayed on the net, designed for being independent from the specific story represented and suitable to different literary genres. They are the ...
  • Beyond Viewpoint: X3D Camera Nodes for Digital Cinematography 

    Weekley, Jeffrey D.; Brutzman, Don (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    This paper describes four candidate X3D extension nodes: Camera, Shot, Movement and OfflineRendering. An X3D lexicon for camera movements is defined so that individuals directing virtual cameras in X3D can directly apply ...
  • Detecting Inconsistencies in the Design of Virtual Environments over the Web using Domain Specific Rules 

    Mansouri, Haithem; Kleinermann, Frederic; Troyer, Olga De (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    the web for various purposes such as education, collaborative working or social networking. Unfortunately, the development process of such environments remains a demanding task, often accessible only to VE experts despite ...
  • A Processing Pipeline for X3D Earth-based Spatial Data View Services 

    Reitz, Thorsten; Krämer, Michel; Thum, Simon (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Over the last years, a high demand for scenario-specific visualizations of 3D urban models has evolved. At the same time, established service specifications do not yet provide the means to define 3D map products and to ...
  • Towards a new Camera Model for X3D 

    Jung, Yvonne; Behr, Johannes (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Creating and setting the right parameters for the virtual camera is crucial for any content creation process. However, this is not easy since most current camera models, including the X3D Viewpoint, use a 3D position and ...
  • X3DOM - A DOM-based HTML5/ X3D Integration Model 

    Behr, Johannes; Eschler, Peter; Jung, Yvonne; Zöllner, Michael (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    We present a model that allows to directly integrate X3D nodes into HTML5 DOM content. This model tries to fulfill the promise of the HTML5 specification, which references X3D for declarative 3D scenes but does not define ...
  • 3D Modeling in a Web Browser to Formulate Content-Based 3D Queries 

    Berndt, René; Havemann, Sven; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    We present a framework for formulating domain-dependent 3D search queries suitable for content-based 3D search over the web. Users are typically not willing to spend much time to create a 3D query object. They expect to ...
  • Web Based Presentation of Semantically Tagged 3D Content for Public Sculptures and Monuments in the UK 

    Rodriguez-Echavarria, Karina; Morris, David; Arnold, David (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    The documentation and presentation of 3D digital content is a critical but non-trivial task for the Cultural Heritage sector. Curators are often faced with the task of cataloguing every piece of heritage and maintaining ...
  • Integration of Haptics with Web3D using the SAI 

    Kurmos, Liam; John, Nigel W.; Roberts, Jonathan C. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Haptics force-feedback technology is fast becoming a consumer product and no longer only found in research laboratories. The emergence of the budget Falcon device (Novint Technologies, Inc., USA) represents a key step in ...
  • Function-based haptic collaboration in X3D 

    Wei, Lei; Sourin, Alexei; Stocker, Herbert (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    We seek to further expand X3D by augmenting it with functionbased definitions of geometry, appearance and tangible physical properties. Besides using alone, the introduced nodes can augment and enrich the standard X3D ...
  • An asymmetric 2D Pointer / 3D Ray for 3D Interaction within Collaborative Virtual Environments 

    Duval, Thierry; Fleury, Cedric (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    In this paper we present a new metaphor for interaction within Collaborative Virtual Environments (CVE). This metaphor is dedicated to non-immersive or semi-immersive 3D interactions, for which users cannot afford to buy ...
