Aeolian Islands 3D Model

A Virtual reality application



The 3D model is composed by aerial images with detail about 1 meters and elevation grids with detail about 25 meters. The seven distinct models of the respective islands were inserted in a 3D world in VRML format, to be shown from a diffuse player, and with the possibility of inserting interactive elements.
To allow a fluid navigation in a 3D scene of remarkable dimension and detail, was used multiresolution technology in combination with the "level of detail" which dynamically download the scene on the basis of the distance from the observer.
