Presentation Overview

The convergence of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) with connected devices and 3D geospatial information can greatly improve the way we communicate complex information and make complex decisions to solve real-life problems. Interactive 3D GIS softwares are directly benefiting from advances driven by the gaming industry to provide users with immersive capabilities and new way to interact with geospatial data. At the same time, the gaming industry is increasingly using geospatial data to enhance gamers’ experience and expand their reach to the simulation, training and advertising market.
During this presentation, we will briefly introduce the concepts of VR and AR systems, interactive GIS and game engine tools. Based on examples, we will explore how it all started, what are the current applications of these immersive technologies and how future developments can shape the geospatial industry of tomorrow.
