Three users collaboratively explore a 3D building model in a co-located multi-user multi-display environment. The physical displays (wall and tabletop) and additional virtual views (portals) facilitate the simultaneous exploration of the virtual scene from different viewpoints. User input (e.g., a 3D pick ray) can be consistently applied across these independent viewing windows. 3D video avatars represent the users in the virtual environment (see tabletop view).
