This dissertation presents the creation of the Platform for Setting-up Interactive Virtual Environments (pSIVE). Bearing in mind the difficulty required to create virtual environments, the platform aims to allow non-specialists to benefit from virtual environments with applications such as virtual tours as marketing or training where one could interact with elements of the environment to extract contextual information. For this, several frameworks and technologies possible of been integrated to the platform are presented as well as which ones are more suitable. The platform allows users, from a configuration tool, to create virtual environments and set up their aspects as modes of interaction and what hardware to use. The construction of the world is done by loading 3D models and associate multimedia information (videos, texts or PDF documents) to them.
