title Virtual Reality Urban Modelling - An Overview
source CONVR2006 6th Conference on Construction Applications of Virtual Reality, Orlando, Florida, USA, 3-4 August 2006
summary This paper offers an overview of the increasing use of Virtual Reality (VR) technologies for the simulation of urban environments. It provides a summary of cities worldwide where three-dimensional computer modelling is being utilised to aid urban planning. The study considers the need for a digital representation of cities and raises issues pertaining to advantages, barriers and ownership. A case study of a pilot project on the visualisation of Newcastle upon Tyne is examined to show an approach adopted for the representation of this city in North East England. The process of this visualisation is summarised and future research is outlined in relation to this city model.
keywords Virtual Reality, 3D Modelling, Visualisation, Ownership, City Models, Town Planning, Newcastle upon Tyne England.
