A water distribution network model which was based on virtual reality was constructed and the state-of-art was simulated in a 3D scene. It works with a clear sense. The water network engineering database was built firstly in this paper to keep the precision of the 3D model. The water network model was constructed after the 3D models of the valves and pipes were made. The model was driven by the Vega and the simulation of the state-of-art was taken by the VC++MFC and EPANET software package. In conclusion, all kinds of data for water distribution network could be shown in the VR based simulation of the water distribution network directly. The topology linkage of the water network and the state-of-art analysis can be realized. The system overcomes the limitation of the traditional GIS system, and the simulation is exact and believable.
