A System for Geographical and Spatial Data Exploration on the Internet

Chan, C.S.L., Chan, T.K.Y. and Prakash, E.C.

    Developing a detailed 3D conceptual spatial data model and incorporating it for visualization, is a promising method of Spatial Data Exploration for a variety of applications especially in the display, analysis and interpretation of useful and timely meteorological and geographical information. Spatial Data Exploration is quite complex due to the following factors: i) the spatial nature of data that is being processed ii) time-variant nature of data. In this paper we present a new system that can use VR techniques for spatial data exploration. We also present the implementation and some results that validate our architecture.
