Abstract

This paper describes the development of the 3D graphics part of an astronomical education installation for school children, called the Virtual Control Room, as part of the ASH project (IST-1999-10859). The content is a very detailed model of our Solar System, which can be used with an augmented reality interface or remote controlled with an external XML capable control application.
