Refine XR

refine-XR is a CRUD-based management system that enables users to manage 3D assets and create web-based XR applications without requiring any programming expertise.

The system comprises a 3D viewer within the admin dashboard, enabling users to configure WebXR experiences using various input options. Additionally, users can directly publish their experiences within the system.

The second step is to select the stops on the trip, with the aid of Google Maps API. The system automatically generates a list of routes with corresponding distances and durations for quick review.
