Abstract

The main purpose of this project was to develop a working VR environment to test different forms of data visualization. The environment is themed around a fire station dispatch, where users have to put out fires as they appear on the 3D holographic map in front of them. The visualizations that we chose to test were developed to possibly assist the user in their task. Our visualization options included a HUD and a numerical display of the size of the fire and the amount of water in a fire truck. As this project was a portion of an ongoing, larger project, development will continue long after our role has been completed. However, we have created an advanced environment with documentation that will allow future contributors to use our work with ease.
