Paper Abstract

Virtual technologies find more and more applications in many areas of our lives, ranging from the entertainment industry to advanced real-time information systems. They can also be successfully used in spatial or geographical information systems, which increases the information potential of such solutions.

What virtual technologies can bring to GIS is related to, among others with the three-dimensionality of imaging and the possibility of its full perception with the use of immersive virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) solutions. VR/AR solutions offer the possibility of virtualizing various types of data as well as advanced methods of interacting with them, for example with controllers, hands, sight or verbal communication.

An example of this can be image data from systems: active (Range Gated Imaging) or panoramic. New possibilities in the field of visualization of this type of data result in the increase of analytical capabilities, among others in the field of terrafotogrammetry.

The possibility of using virtual technologies in GIS 3D solutions applies to both stationary applications (management centers) and mobile applications (field patrols). Each of these solutions brings a number of synergistic effects (including the effect of cognitive enhancement). The presented content is more adapted to the human perceptive capabilities.

The study contains selected issues and examples of solutions currently being carried out at the Institute of Optoelectronics of the Military University of Technology (IOE-MUT) by the authors.
