Virtual agents (VAs) are increasingly utilized in large-scale architectural immersive virtual environments (LAIVEs) to enhance user engagement and presence. However, challenges persist in effectively localizing these VAs for user interactions and optimally orchestrating them for an interactive experience. To address these issues, we propose to extend world in miniatures (WIMs) through different localization and manipulation techniques as these 3D miniature scene replicas embedded within LAIVEs have already demonstrated effectiveness for wayfinding, navigation, and object manipulation. The contribution of our ongoing research is thus the enhancement of manipulation and localization capabilities within WIMs, focusing on the use case of VAs.
