Abstract: The paper discusses virtual reality as a visualization tool such that users could interact with a developed application medium, as if they are inside the virtual environment presenting the application. Virtual reality as a presentational medium offers different views of reality• which real estate agents could use to visualize estate properties. In this paper the virtual application (prototype) was designed using ArcGIS 8.2, Internet Space Builder (ISB) and Image Editing software. Interviews and responses to questionnaires used as inputs to developing the application are highlighted. The developed application involving 3D virtual environment was achieved by exporting an extruded two and half dimensional (2Zi D) cube-like shapes of cadastral parcel boundaries into Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML). The developed application was then tested. The intent of developing the 3D virtual application (prototype) is to help clients ’ of real estate agents to visualize properties in 3D when they visit the real estate agents.
