While frameworks and application programming interfaces for virtual reality are commonplace today, designing scenarios for virtual environments still remains a tedious and time consuming task. We present a new authoring tool which combines scene assembly and visual programming in a desktop application with instant testing, tuning and planning in an(More)
We present the prototype omVR, which is a Virtual Reality based safety training system in a petroleum refinery. It provides an advanced technique for personnel safety training and allows users to navigate through the training setup and interact with parts of the refinery.

Prognostically relevant factors are determined by both univariate and multivariate analyses. Of the 18 factors(More)
Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) data is frequently organized in the form of multidimensional data cubes each of which is used to examine a set of data values, called measures, associated with multiple dimensions and their multiple levels. In this paper, we first propose a conceptual multidimensional data model, which is able to represent and capture(More)
