Virtual Campus

  (with Horace Ip and Edward Chan)

In this project, we are creating a 3D model of our university campus for visitors to walkthrough via the Internet using a browser such as the VRML. So far, it is more an implementation type of project. We have already created the main sections of the campus. However, we expect that it will still take quite sometime for the whole model to be completed.

We are currently also looking at some research issues in this project. In particular, as the campus model is very large, rendering it or even downloading it on a PC will take a long time. We are investigating techniques to automoatically segment the model to improve the rendering performance and for dynamic downloading.

Here are some sample images of the City University of Hong Kong produced from our 3D campus model:
