Interactive web-based 3D technologies are leading the development of new opportunities in health, geospatial, and defense. These technologies provide an interactive real-time 3D solution that allows dispersed groups to interactively address real-world issues. Virginia Tech and Web3D Consortium are presenting demonstrations, discussions, and opportunities of emerging Web3D technologies. The presentations will be at the Virginia Tech Research Center in Arlington Virginia (directions). The event is open to all OGC members and attendees of OGC's Technical Committee meeting and other selected guests. Request Invitation
