VR-Lab activities, Spring 2017

Through spring 2017, VR-Lab team members has been actively working on testing new technologies, participating in conferences, seminars and outreach events. One interesting area that we started working with is VR as educational tool for schools. A new VR system has been made ready for experimentations and tastings for classrooms.

Land Use Zoning Plan In 3D: Concept

A concept of a 3D land use zoning plan and opportunities that arise in the transformation from 2D to 3D. A master study by Jesper Vesøen, 2013. This master’s thesis attempts to create a concept of a 3D land use zoning plan and looks at the opportunities that arise in the transformation from 2D to 3D.


Use of Visualizations in Planning Processes

Master study about communication and understanding by Thomas B. Hansen, 2013. The study examines the process of visualization in planning. With several ways to visualize it is important to be aware of the choices being made in the process of making a visualization.
