ViBe (Virtual Berlin) - Immersive Interactive 3D Urban Data Visualization Immersive interactive 3D urban data visualization

Bondakji, Louna Al; Lammich, Anne-Liese; Werner, Liss C.;

Article:

The project investigates the possibility of visualizing open source data in a 3Dinteractive virtual environment. We propose a new tool, `ViBe'. We programmed`ViBe' using Unity for its compatibility with HTC VIVE glasses for virtual reality(VR). ViBe offers an abstract visualization of open source data in a 3D interactiveenvironment. The ViBe environment entails three main topics a) inhabitants, b)environmental factors, and c) land-use; acting as representatives of parametersfor cities and urban design. Berlin serves as a case study. The data sets used aredivided according to Berlin's twelve administrative districts. The user immersesinto the virtual environment where they can choose, using the HTC Vivecontrollers, which district (or Berlin as a whole) they want information for andwhich topics they want to be visualized, and they can also teleport back and forthbetween the different districts. The goal of this project is to represent differenturban parameters an abstract simulation where we correlate the correspondingdata sets. By experiencing the city through visualized data, ViBe aims to providethe user with a clearer perspective onto the city and the relationship between itsurban parameters. ViBe is designed for adults and kids, urban planners,politicians and real estate developers alike.
