The Potential of VR-based Tactical Resource Planning on Spatial Data

IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces 2022


In this work, we leverage the benefits of immersive head-mounted displays (HMDs) and present the design, implementation, and evaluation of a collaborative Virtual Reality (VR) application for tactical resource planning on spatial data. We derived system and design requirements from observations of a military on-site staff exercise and evaluated our prototype, we conducted semi-structured interviews with domain experts. Our results show that the potential of VR-based tactical resource planning is dependent on the technical features as well as on non-technical environmental aspects, such as user attitude, prior experience, and interoperability.
