Paper Abstract

In currently on-going project we develop methods and techniques for visualizing building services in our virtual room. At first we have established a conversion and transmission path from contractor's lighting modeling software to virtual environment software. In the next phase we have defined the conversion and transmission path of computational fluid dynamics data to the virtual room and investigated suitable ways to explore and visualize it in virtual room. The goal in this partial objective is the visualization of air flow data in a photo-realistic room in such a way that a non- specialist can easily understand the behavior of air flow. Another on-going process is evaluation of new navigation techniques. Our aim is to develop navigation techniques which allow an arbitrary visitor to explore the model without guidance. This requires the adaptation and testing of different interaction equipment and methods.
