Visualization and Virtual Environments
Throughout the Hunt Library, visualization is a tool for creating and showcasing new knowledge in all disciplines. Large-scale displays in different sizes, configurations, and capabilities encourage creativity in how we visualize the world with data and digital media. The Library's emphasis on large-scale visualization supports the diverse teaching and research mission of the university while providing a uniquely powerful tool for problem-solving and unlocking the knowledge in data.
