Learning construction in virtual worlds
Abstract: Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) is a tool for creating and
distributing virtual worlds on the Internet. It can be used to create a 3D
virtual environment by computer-rendered simulation of an interactive
scene with links to other virtual worlds or 2D information. It allows
information to be organized spatially and related by location and proximity.
This paper summarizes the concepts and potentials of VRML applications in
the construction industry. The design and development of virtual worlds of
building construction is discussed. User's interaction with the virtual worlds
to explore and understand concepts in construction is illustrated.
