Multiuser 3D Geological modeling in Virtual and Augmented Reality

In the recent year, consumer grade Virtual Reality (VR) and Mixed Reality/Augmented Reality (AR) Systems have rapidly improved and are widely used in industry and research. We make use of these developments with the concurrent development of highly efficient and optimised geological modeling algorithms. These are enabling us to update geological models during construction in real-time in VR. The implementation has been tested on our local VR system for a single user. However, we already have the technical capabilities of extending the model construction to a multiple-user setting with multiple VR/AR systems. In this project, we will implement and test this capability, and enable the next step to an immersive and interactive multi-user geological modeling environment in full 3-D.
