Abstract:

This paper describes initial research using the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML97) in construction industry applications. the modeling of steel structures and construction equipment as objects for inclusion in construction-site world models was studied. The ultimate goal is to provide three-dimensional web-based technologies for managing, accessing, and viewing construction project information.
