In recent years, dome display has become popular, and it is desired to establish a method to create dome image contents easily. In this study, psychophysical experiment was conducted to measure the three-dimensional sensation that was felt in the dome environment quantitatively. Based on the result of this experiment, the layered image representation method was developed. In this method, dome image is generated by placing the two-dimensional layered images in the three-dimensional space. The user can feel the three-dimensional sensation from the image by moving the layers or view position effectively. In addition, the scenario description language and the renderer were developed so that the usual creator can produce the dome image contents easily without the programming. This method was applied to produce some dome image contents and the effectiveness of this method was evaluated.
