  title={Integratig Geographic Information in VRML Models},
  author={Michael Abernathy and Sam Shaw},
This paper describes some of the practical considerations in integrating three classes of geographic data into VRML models: topography, satellite and aerial imagery, and GPS data. In 1997, we constructed what may be the world’s first VRML model of a relay racecourse integrating these classes of information. We summarize the lessons learned from building the models, and from presenting the models to users (in this case the runners). The evidence is that VRML[l] is a potentially excellent… CONTINUE READING
