This paper presents the development process of a visualization system for groundwater diffuse and concentrated flows, and quality parameters, within the same continuous media, based on the integration of VRML solutions within groundwater simulation models. The system is being implemented within Castelo de Vide aquifer for a virtual reality visualization of simulations and variability analysis of the aquifer and Sever river interaction, concerning climate and anthropogeneous factors, beyond pumping for water supply, on the 3D model of the aquifer, using data available in the Research Center. The implementation process meaning a compatibility platform between the FEM and VR environment converts data attributes into graphic qualities or shape modifications containing additional information such as the user's initial point of view, what lights are available, the background, and other contextual information is presented. An interface for three dimensional virtual reality is based on a standard web browser equipped with any one of many freely available plug-in's will be also described.
