Google Maps and Panoramas in Immersive VR Environments
We present our approach for enabling users to inject Google maps and geo-located panoramic views into virtual training environments. These virtual environments can be created by users through point and click operations. We believe that by mixing 3D virtual content with real world geo-located visual cues, trainees are able to translate more easily any skill or knowledge they acquire during their virtual training.

Evaluating VR Platforms: OpenSimulator, Unity 3D, WebGl and Other Applications
Current virtual environment developers often find it difficult to pick a suitable virtual reality platform to support their application. This panel is an opportunity for developers proficient in current competing platforms to share their experience and discuss future platform evolution trajectories. It will also allow OpenSimulator core developers to differentiate OpenSimulator from its peers.
