ABSTRACT. In this article, I cumulate previous research findings indicating that computer vision and deep learning algorithms, digital twinning and remote sensing technologies, and machine learning-based image recognition and decision support tools optimize immersive hyper-connected virtual spaces. I contribute to the literature on metaverse assets and services, data visualization and virtual navigation tools, and artificial intelligence-powered search capabilities by showing that movement and behavior tracking tools, data sharing and image-based object recognition technologies, and real-time visual analytics and immersive visualization systems are instrumental in extended reality environments. Throughout December 2022, I performed a quantitative literature review of the Web of Science, Scopus, and ProQuest databases, with search terms including “the metaverse” + “visual perception and environment mapping algorithms,” “spatial computing and immersive 3D technologies,” and “movement and behavior tracking tools.” As I inspected research published between 2022 and 2023, only 176 articles satisfied the eligibility criteria. By eliminating controversial findings, outcomes unsubstantiated by replication, too imprecise material, or having similar titles, I decided upon 35, generally empirical, sources. Data visualization tools: Dimensions (bibliometric mapping) and VOSviewer (layout algorithms). Reporting quality assessment tool: PRISMA. Methodological quality assessment tools include: AXIS, Dedoose, ROBIS, and SRDR.

Keywords: visual perception and environment mapping algorithms; spatial computing and immersive 3D technologies; movement and behavior tracking tools; metaverse
