Because of technological limitations, commercial software vendors have been unable to develop a real time 3-D visualization and data analysis package that could be widely used by the remote sensing and GIS community. REcent advancements in the areas of 3-D hardware, virtual environment research,and software standards have allowed for the development of a low cost virtual environment package for the first time. Products such as VirtualGIS will allow users to not only visualize their data in 3-D, but also do their analysis in 3-D. This and other virtual environment products may pave the path to high growth and acceptance by the general public for ImagingGIS software solutions.
