The Insight Center offers the following capabilities:

  • Analysis of large-scale simulations, ensembles of simulations, and highly detailed visual analytics displays
  • Exploration of and interaction with complex data in new ways that promote and accelerate understanding and innovation.

Key Infrastructure

Stereoscopic immersive virtual environment composed of six projectors that illuminate two surfaces—a wall and the floor—that can be used in conjunction with an optical tracker; large, rear-projected, 14-megapixel image display in meeting space.
