This is a virtual reality model of the NTU campus with the software tools allowing one to walk through the campus with a high level of realism. The real NTU campus occupies the area of 1.5x2.0 km with very uneven terrain, and has a large number of buildings with quite sophisticated architecture. Its virtual model was created with the powerful real-time modeling system MultiGen II Pro and a sound subsystem of Paradigm Vega on the SGI ONYX RE2. Compared to the VRML version of the Virtual Campus, this model has much higher level of photo-realism. The snapshots of the virtual campus are displayed below.
