Automatically Designed 3-D Environments for Intuitive Browsing and Discovery

Chang, Nelson L.; Said, Amir


Keyword(s): automatically designed 3-D environments; virtual environments; intuitive browsing; discovery; human- computer interface; real time interactive visualization

Abstract: While popular as a visual interface, current interactive 3-D environments are often times painstakingly created by hand, making it difficult to mass-produce custom environments quickly. This paper proposes interactive 3-D environments that are automatically designed on-the-fly based on various design rules, thereby separating layout and content. The resulting environments are compelling, customizable, and intuitive for information foraging. The interface also serves as an integrated framework for different types of rich media. The complete system for designing, constructing, and rendering the environments in real time is discussed and shown to have implications in a variety of applications including e-commerce.
