Collaborative Visualization in Augmented Reality
July-August 1998 (vol. 18 no. 4)
pp. 54-59
Studierstube is an augmented reality system with several advantages over conventional desktop and other virtual reality environments. It includes true stereoscopy, 3D interaction, individual viewpoints and customized views for multiple users, unhindered natural collaboration, and low cost. We demonstrate its application by integrating our virtual environment into a commercial visualization system. Several visualizations of dynamical systems constructed with our toolkit DynSys3D illustrate Studierstube's benefits. An evaluation of the collaboration techniques completes the presentation.
