On the Application of Virtual Simulation in Teaching of Engineering Surveying and Mapping

Virtual systems aim to provide a virtual environment and intelligent interaction for building measurements. In the face of complex scene tasks, measurement process simulation and analysis can be completed in advance, so as to assist the actual construction. For the requirements in the virtual simulation teaching of surveying and mapping, the virtual measurement area and its corresponding surveying and mapping response methods are required. The paper presents 3-dimensional visual measurement area that makes the mapping and surveying works. In our experiment, we use the teacher platform that is a contemporary educational application based on cloud computing technology. It is a 3D digital curriculum possibility that integrates an interactive reading experience, multimedia learning materials, and learning aids. Based on the simulator process, we show an application of virtual simulation is a complex micro individual with prominent intelligent interaction characteristics in construction simulation scenarios, which has great research significance in both theory and practice. Taking this simulator prototype as an example, the paper comprehensively applies virtual simulation to carry out research on building key technologies. The paper presents the virtual simulation in teaching can improve students learning enthusiasm and learning efficiency in many ways such as teaching and learning.
