Shameless Plug – Our immersive visualization lab featured in ArcNews

The Winter 2006/2007 issue of ArcNews arrived today, and we were excited to see that WVU GeoVirtual Lab’s newly-installed CAVE system with a custom connector for ArcScene and ArcGlobe, was featured. I was especially happy that they printed the photos of the project I sweated and toiled over all last summer and fall with our student workers.

Using SketchUp, custom ArcGIS style galleries, and ArcScene, we generated a 3D model of downtown Morgantown in 1900, with historic maps, photos, and other info as our guides. In the end, we generated over 350 unique structure models, which really put ArcScene to the test.
