Virtual reality system

Summary:
The virtual reality (VR) system that has been developed during the FLIERS project can be used to visualize multi-dimensional earth observation data in an effective way. It can be used to explore results of techniques used to extract quantitative sub-pixel information, such as fuzzy membership and spectral unmixing. The VR system allows for the display, in an immersive graphical environment, of several different three-dimensional representations of the same data. This approach helps understand the structure of information in different feature sub-spaces, which can aid modeling and product extraction. The exploratory tool developed during this project extends this functionality by combining the methods normally present in desktop applications, with the enhanced abilities (both quantitative and qualitative) of an immersive system.
