AbstractThis paper presents the results of a formal experiment that evaluated three viewpoint orientation techniques for desktop virtual walkthroughs. The results suggest that the use of either velocity or position control techniques for viewpoint orientation does not have a large effect on both travel time and distance for virtual walkthroughs. These results are useful for designers of desktop interactive 3D environments.
