Title: Web-based 3-D theatre seating charts and ticket reservation application
Author: Henstebeck, Patrick
Abstract: Seating charts for theatres and stadia have always been an important part of buying tickets to a staged event, despite offering little information about the view from any particular seat. While the internet has increased the potential to provide this information, most official arena websites and online ticket brokers still only provide the standard two-dimensional diagram whose detail is limited to the approximate location of each section and which offers no guidance as to the height or slope of the section, nor any warning of any obstructing objects that would depreciate a seat s true value. The few three-dimensional models that exist in this area are the product of a large investment of time and resources that may not be available to small and mid-level arena owners. This project provides an application that can transform a simple XML file consisting mostly of a listing of the seating rows in the arena into a threedimensional world that can model the view of a staging area from every seat in the house. This application can model a wide range of theatres and includes a seat reservation system to provide an easy way for users to intelligently purchase tickets.
