A system for automatically displaying selected views of an assembly facility (e.g., an arena, coliseum, concert hall, convention center, events center, lecture hall, opera house, race track, sports venue, stadium, theater, velodrome, or the like) from selected seating areas thereof. The system operates in conjunction with existing external software for generating tickets for assembly-facility events. The system of the present invention allows the ticket customer to see an approximation of the view from a particular seat for a particular event configuration. The system may be implemented using conventional CAD Computer Aided Design hardware. In one embodiment, the system may be implemented as an "automated teller machine" (ATM) for unattended ticket selection and sales.
