In our research, we also focus on innovative interaction concepts and techniques. In particular, we develop techniques that take advantage of the semantics of geospatial objects and their affordances with respect to interaction and behavior.
For example, one approach is based on two aligned concepts: 1) All navigation techniques are controlled by constraints that ensure user orientation and avoid "getting lost" situations. 2) All navigation techniques are handled in a time-coherent way achieving steady, continuous user movements using a physically-based motion model. Based on these concepts, we have demonstrated several ways to improve commonly used navigation techniques for GeoVEs.
