Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for displaying data, such as 3D models, having spatial coordinates. In one aspect, a height map and color map are generated from the data. In another aspect, material classification is applied to surfaces within a 3D model. Based on the 3D model, the height map, the color map, and the material classification, haptic responses are generated on a haptic device. In another aspect, a 3D user interface (UI) data model comprising model definitions is derived from the 3D models. The 3D model is updated with video data. In another aspect, user controls are provided to navigate a point of view through the 3D model to determine which portions of the 3D model are displayed.
