Distance estimation in minimal virtual reality environments.

  This paper reports on an experimental study into distance estimation in a simple virtual environment. The results have been then compared with an experimental study of spatial cognition in the real world. It is concluded that the minimal virtual environment resembles a restricted Euclidean environment (or Euclidean environments viewed in a restricted or blinkered manner).
