Complementation for the Creation of the Virtual Reality Interunities Laboratory


Virtual Reality (VR) is an interface technology capable of stimulating people's senses through a virtual environment created from a computer system. In VR, visual and sound effects are induced, allowing the person to be immersed in a simulated environment, with or without direct user interaction. VR presupposes the creation of objects and virtual worlds, where interaction happens through immersion and with the aid of helmets, glasses and other equipment. VR techniques have varied applications in different academic and scientific fields. In the field of geosciences, these techniques have been highly developed and can be used for the integration of geological, geochemical, geophysical, geotechnical, geographical, pedological and space management data in an advanced VR visualization interface. This allows intuitive navigation with real-time interaction and allows the user to immerse the system in the model generated through the use of VR equipment. The generated model, when viewed in Desktop RV (computer or notebook) mode or in a Virtual Reality Room, allows integrated geo-visualization of surface data (orthophotos, satellite images, digital elevation models, geological maps, geological structures), geomorphological features, location of research works, geological points, property boundaries, mineral rights polygons, boundaries of environmental protection areas, parks, among others) and subsurface (geological, geochemical, geophysical, block model, drillholes, geological profiles).
