Abstract

The Ossa project is an attempt to develop an alternative conceptual modelling technique for virtual realities. This thesis identifies several problems with existing object-oriented modelling approaches used for virtual realities, and suggests some possible solutions. Ossa employs conceptual graphs and production system technology to create a modelling environment. The corresponding prototype of the Ossa system is discussed in detail and compared to the object-oriented approach.
