Abstract : The perception of the images in the Immersive and Non-Immersive systems are based on stereoscopic methods. In the Immersive system, the stereo images form a virtual world in which you are fully immersed. The Non-Immersive system presents the virtual world more like a three dimensional topographical map before you on the table surface. The spatial nature of the database in the Non-Immersive system entices one to reach out and touch, or point at features in the virtual model. To encourage natural interaction with the virtual model, we have experimented with several alternatives and have discovered some techniques which perform well.
