A main objective of large industrial-engineering departments is implementing integrated information systems to manage their projects' life cycles. Environ is an application motivated by the demand to use Virtual Reality in large engineering models generated by CAD tools. Environ's main goal is to offer 3D visualization resources for CAD models with enough realism to serve as an integration tool for several engineering activities in the oil and gas industry.
