Published

Author(s)

Robert R. Lipman

Abstract

Until recently, visualization of 3D models required computational resources available only on desktop computers in office environments. With the advance of technology, it is now possible to visualize substantial 3D models on mobile handheld computers in the field. This paper discusses some of the current technology, discusses the use of the Virtual Reality Modeling Language on mobile handheld computers, shows several examples of 3D structural steelwork models visualized on a mobile handheld computer, and identifies some of the limitations imposed by current technology.
