AnthroGloss - A 3D Visual Anthropometric Landmark Glossary

by Sandy Ressler and Jerry Candela

This VRML world is a visual anthropometric glossary. The names correspond to the CAESAR (Civilian American and European Surface Anthropometry Resource) project names and (roughly) to the H-ANIM site names.

Place the cursor over the sphere's next to the list of names to go to a viewpoint for that landmark. Selecting a landmark causes the sphere on the body to highlight red. In addition the full name of the landmark appears in larger sized text. The control panel can be opened up to reveal check box selections for reference planes, reach volumes and a sight cone.

All textual elements can be moved by dragging. You may drag all the textual elements off of the screen for increased performance. To bring them back select the "Drag Reset" box (which may not be moved).
