Abstract
The thesis investigated the feasibility of replacing the classical approach to teaching rock wall mapping with a virtual reality system. The conducted research consisted of user trials conducted with help of over thirty students and employees of the Aalto University staff. The obtained results have found that the VUTE VR system was capable of providing substantial time savings while enabling its users to obtain measurement results of higher quality than those gathered in real-life and in result proving that for teaching purposes, the system is a feasible replacement to the real-life tunnel visit
