Harnessing “Virtual Reality” to Control Flexibility of View


Interactive photographic panoramas and walkthroughs are gaining acceptance in courts nationwide. The ability to provide at-will flexibility and control of view from a static position or along predetermined paths has a multitude of uses in litigation. Sometimes also described as “virtual reality” (probably originating from the commonly used software QuickTime VR, or “Virtual Reality”), 360-degree panning and vertical movement from within a single view gives you the ability to “look” in any direction at will. This method is not limited to just a single medium, such as photographic panoramas, but can also be utilized with computer generated 3D models. However, because of the relative youth of this technology, certain protocols should be followed to ensure acceptance by the court, and to establish a proper foundation when entered into evidence.
