The article advocates advantages of 3D virtual information systems and suggests possible techniques for their fast automatic acquisition from range and colour registered images together with solutions for virtual space navigation problems. The proposed system consists of five main parts - range image segmentation, texture analysis, virtual model geometry inference, texture synthesis, and the navigation in virtual environment.
