Tactical and Strategical Analysis in Virtual Geographical Environments

IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces Abstracts and Workshops (VRW) 2021


Planning tactical and strategical operations on a terrain is a well structured and complex process. It is usually executed by a group of interdisciplinary experts with different objectives. Traditional equipment for tactical analysis like paper maps or sand tables cannot transfer spatial understanding for visibility analysis and height judgment. Immersive virtual geographical environments offer additional perspectives for rapid decision making and reasoning of spatial structures. We propose a collaborative multi-user virtual reality system for the tactical analysis of terrain data to support mission planning
