Paper Abstract

This paper describes a system called Q-PIT. It is a prototype example of a class of systems we define as populated information terrains. Within the scope of our work, we examine issues from multi-user virtual reality, data visualization and the use of databases to support cooperative work. We describe the use of Q-PIT as an information terrain, show how such a terrain can be generated, explored and manipulated, before considering the issues of populating such a terrain with more than one user.
