In the Book: Dr. Yun Zhang & UNB EarthView3D Project Team Develop 3D Line Maps (VR) Visualization

Funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), Canada Research Chairs program, and the New Brunswick Innovation Foundation Research Technicians Initiative, Dr. Yun Zhang and his EarthView3D project team in the Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering at UNB developed ground-breaking technology and a software system to generate seamless global 3D images and 3D line maps for realistic virtual reality (VR) visualization. Using a VR tool, one can travel virtually all over the world exploring the ocean floors, mountain ridges and valleys, and even one’s own neighbourhood in realistic 3D without ever leaving home.

The project was selected by CFI for its 20th anniversary book, Innovation: A Desire to Make Things Better. A total of 37 outstanding research projects were selected by CFI for the book out of the thousands of projects across Canada funded by CFI since its inception.

The book, as a PDF file, may be downloaded from here.
