Paper Abstract

A peer-to-peer collaborative visualization system has been built that can support both traditional displays and 3D virtual reality hardware. The software is built around Sun’s Java3D graphics and JXTA peer-to-peer networking APIs, allowing two users to load VRML geometry files and manipulate their contents. Although this software takes advantage of VR hardware, it may be used between any two Java supporting peers. Finally, because no dedicated server is required, collaborative visualizations across the web become easier to initiate and more spontaneous.
