An augmented virtual environment (AVE) fuses dynamic imagery with 3D models. The AVE provides a unique approach to visualize and comprehend multiple streams of temporal data or images. Models are used as a 3D substrate for the visualization of temporal imagery, providing improved comprehension of scene activities. The core elements of AVE systems include model construction, sensor tracking, real-time video/image acquisition, and dynamic texture projection for 3D visualization. This paper focuses on the integration of these components and the results that illustrate the utility and benefits of the resulting augmented virtual environment.
