Description

With the continuing increase in speed and capability of commodity graphics processors, immersive visualization offers increasing opportunities to express scientifically meaningful results. Data at NIST spans a wide range from nano to cement to models that exhibit complex dynamics. This research will build on our open source software that runs on a linux desktop as well as immersively. Opportunities exist for (1) investigating the use of immersive visualization as a scientific instrument for exploration and representation of data; (2) developing interactive measurement techniques on visualizations; (3) developing ways to merge analysis with visualization and provide quantitative feedback into the visualization; (4) exploring and expressing uncertainties due to the data as well as the visualization methods; (5) harnessing the growing capability of graphics processors to provide insight; (6) advancing the use of abstraction to express meaning in data; and (7) developing user interaction methods, including direct manipulation techniques.
