Geospatial environments provide users with complex and detailed 3D data sets. While many different visualization techniques allow valuable insights, intuitive and natural exploration approaches are often missing, and hence usually only domain-experts are able to efficiently explore such data sets. In this paper we demonstrate a virtual reality (VR) based setup for geographic information systems (GIS), which allows users to perform navigation tasks in stereoscopically displayed interactive 3D geospatial environments using multi-touch hand gestures in combination with foot input. Furthermore, we have performed an initial user study in which we analyzed the proposed setup.
