Abstract

This papers reports on an ongoing project to create 3D virtual exhibitions for the Internet. Special emphasis to provide Internet users with interactive and animated virtual worlds, providing a 3D interface whenever possible, is one ofour priorities. Furthermore our project allows the construction of exhibitions through the Internet providing art galleries and other institutions with the possibility to ask visitors to participate in the site, building their own exhibition. Providing VRML optimised code we can deliver models with low polygon count as well as small file size thereby making this project suitable for Internet viewing.
