Results of the ongoing project, aimed at parallel interactive visualisation of spatial data coming from GIS system are presented. Application Vis3D being developed by the authors is a product of one of the demonstration tasks of the CLUSTERIX (National Cluster of Linux Systems) project, currently in its final stage. Major characteristics of the application is the potential for 3D immersion of emergency teams in a virtual scene for Crisis Information Management Software (CIMS) using real terrain data in a real-time.
