VR-Modelling of Data from "Norway Digital" in Combination with other 3D Models

Abstract [en]

The purpose with this master thesis was to use new released data from the Norwegian Mapping Authority to make a virtual world that can be looked at with or without Oculus Rift. In addition, existing 3D models of buildings created in SketchUp were used. Oculus Rift is a new device within virtual reality that have received much attention. Gløshaugen, the campus for the technology students at NTNU, were used as a case. The virtual world runs in a modern web browser, which makes it easily available. Three.js is the chosen graphics library. The program contains a mode with and without Oculus Rift. The report evaluates the performance and concludes that the frame per seconds is a bit low because of the textured buildings. The performance is worst in the mode with Oculus Rift. The visual result should be good enough as a showcase, but not to show a very accurate model of the real world. The user can navigate through the model by using the keyboard or be guided by a flythrough. The literature chapter contains some relevant information to this thesis, for instance virtual reality. It also includes an evaluation other frameworks for making virtual worlds.
