QTVR Objects

Mastodon (Mammut americanum) tooth from Boney Spring,
Boone County, Missouri

This mastodon tooth is a good example of a QTVR object.

QTVR objects are virtual reality scenes in which the viewer can feel like he/she can manipulate some kind of physical object. In other words, QTVR objects provide a view similar to that seen when the user holds the object in hand and turns it around.

QTVR objects can be either multi- or single-planed. With a single-plane object (like the one above) the object can only be rotated around one axis. With a multi-plane object (such as the one shown below) the object can be rotated around three axes.
