Kelp Forest Exhibit

The Kelp Forest Exhibit from the Monterey Bay Aquarium demonstrates what students can accomplish together using VRML and X3D.

The Kelp Forest Exhibit is a large student-produced project that illustrates how X3D can build and integrate a large collection of individual Web-based models. The overall scene that integrates all these individual X3D models is Kelp Forest Main.

The paper Teaching 3D Modeling and Simulation: Virtual Kelp Forest Case Study describes how this group effort was accomplished. Comprehensive modeling efforts such as the Kelp Forest Exhibit provide an excellent way to organize course work and student projects.
