|The Virtual Town Hall of Aalburg is a first
step in a programme by the Dutch governemtn called OverheidsLoket 2000 (OL2000),
'Government counter 2000'. It's aim is to offer citizens a highly user-friendly interface
to networked information systems giving access to municipal services such as housing,
public transport, public health service and assistance, etc.
A first version was created for use on special OL2000 system terminals featuring a pre-rendered 3D graphics environment.
The Virtual Town Hall of Aalburg is a 3D entry or 'menu', if you like, to the more conventional 2D contents of the information system.
This eye-pleasing high-quality 3D world features a video
representation of the Mayor of Aalburg inside the virtual Town Hall. He kindly explains
the user the different ways in which s/he can find various items of information relating
to the town of Aalburg.
