Database Model Visualization in Virtual Reality: Exploring WebVR and Native VR Concepts

  • Databases are becoming an ubiquitous and integral part of most software as the data era and the Internet of Everything unfolds. Alternative database types such as NoSQL grow in popularity and allow data to be stored and accessed more simply or in new ways. Thus, software developers, not just database specialists, are more likely to encounter and need to deal with databases. Virtual Reality (VR) technology has grown in popularity, yet its integration in the software development tool chain has been limited. One potential application area for VR technology that has not been sufficiently explored is database-model visualization. This paper describes Virtual Reality Immersion in Data Models (VRiDaM), a generic database-model approach for visualizing, navigating, and conveying database-model information interactively. It describes and explores both native VR and WebVR solution concepts, with prototypes showing the viability of the approach.
