Database Visualization in 3D

Database Visualization in 3D title image

The Database Visualisation in 3D project purpose is to explore a fusion of Java, database and VRML technologies to design applications for the visualization of information stored in databases.  The research is to build a set of tools which allow a multimodal display of these information in 3D VRML and have an architecture which allow dynamic refresh of the worlds in which the user navigate.

The technology is essentially Client/Server based with ambition to abstract as far as possible the data from the different components and store the maximum in the Database.
