Abstract3D model creation and visualization is often used in digital preservation of looks and structure of historical buildings. Virtual reality (VR) technologies facilitate this 3D model creation and visualization. 3D scanner can be used for acceleration of the data collection and model creation. 3D displays can be used to improve visual perception and 3D printing can be used for physical model creation. In this paper is presented the way for preservation of historical buildings using virtual… Expand
3 D Interfaces of Systems
3D interfaces allow easy and intuitive human-computer communication. These 3D interfaces are most often used in the virtual reality (VR) and VR systems. This fact was the reason for creation of thisExpand
Virtual Reality Models for Promoting Learners Engagement in Construction Studies
The results show that VR models used could provide an intuitive and safe way to engage construction students and help class facilitators engage with experiential learning activities to improve their teaching quality and to make the learning process more enjoyable. Expand
Evaluation of Gesture Description Language in the role of touchless interface for virtual reality environment
The results obtained prove that GDL can be successfully applied in systems that require real time action recognition especially educational software games that aim at increasing the students’ motivation and engagement while they learn. Expand


This paper provides a brief summary of current 3D scanning technologies, deals with some aspects of data processing required to acquire a usable 3D model and presents various 3D visualization methods with focus on stereoscopy. Expand
3D display for a classroom
Different from the conventional Infitec approaches which use expensive high-end projectors, the proposed design employs two consumer projectors together with interference filters to provide high quality 3D viewing. Expand
Task scheduling in distributed system for photorealistic rendering
This project will make imaging more effective from time aspect in distributed systems, because nod utilization will be balanced. Expand
Some useful structures for categorical approach for program behavior
Two ways of expressing algebras in categories are formulated and the codomain functor is constructed from the arrow category of algeBRas into the base category of sets which objects are also the carrier-sets of the alge bras. Expand
