Paper Abstract

The Multimedia Ambiance Communication project has been researched and developed using 3D image space that is shared by people in different locations. In this communication, 3D space is constructed of layered structure defined for long-range, middle-range, short-range views. This research especially focuses on buildings in the middle-range view. We acquire 3D data of buildings using a range scanner and texture data, and represent them in VR space. In the case of real buildings, restrictions result in the acquisition of partial data. To compensate for this, other information such as drawings, photographs, general knowledge, etc, were used. The authors detail the construction of photo-realistic representation of buildings and 3D space.
