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