Worldlets—3D thumbnails for wayfinding in virtual environments
TLDR
A new user interface affordance is introduced that captures a 3D representation of a virtual environment landmark into a3D thumbnail, called a worldlet, that may be interactively viewed in 3D, enabling a traveler to gain first-person experience with a travel destination. Expand

This paper discusses volume scene graphs — a flexible hierarchical structure for composing scenes containing volume data sets and space-filling functions. Scene graph nodes are functions that, whenExpand
Worldlets: 3D thumbnails for 3D browsing
TLDR
An empirical experiment is conducted that shows interactive 3D thumbnails, which are called worldlers, improve travelers’ landmark knowledge and expedite wayfinding in virtual environments. Expand
Visualizing Stars and Emission Nebulas
TLDR
The Orion Nebula's ionization layer is modeled first as a surface model, derived from infrared and visible light observations, then imported into a volume scene graph‐based visualization system that uses procedural volume modeling to simulate the nebula's emissive gas layers. Expand
Worldlets: 3-D Thumbnails for Wayfinding in Large Virtual Worlds
TLDR
Results support the hypothesis that worldlets facilitate traveler landmark knowledge, expedite wayfinding in large virtual environments, and enable skilled wayfinding. Expand
