We collected traces of how 37 users interacted with 9 progressively streamed and rendered 3D meshes. We analyse the traces and discuss the insights that we learned in relation to design of efficient and scalable progressive mesh streaming systems. Our traces indicate the user actions are predicable and exhibit skewed access pattern. This finding could lead to design of efficient pre-fetching and caching techniques for progressive mesh streaming.
