Indianapolis Immersive Visualization Bootcamp

The first immersive visualization bootcamp was held in Indianapolis Indiana on the IUPUI campus on March 25 - 27, 2013. There was a capacity crowd at the inaugural bootcamp, and all indicators point to a successful outcome.

Demonstrating LidarViewer

Immersive visualization makes use of advanced display technologies such as the AVL Virtual Reality Theater at IUPUI to enhance one's ability to see relationships among data representations. The goal of this series of bootcamps is to empower operators and users of immersive (aka virtual reality) visualization facilities with software tools that will enable them to visualize data in a variety of formats using their advanced displays. Much of the software discussed is open-source to enable participants to freely incorporate packages into their workflow suite.

Sponsors of the bootcamp were Indiana University Advanced Visualization Lab (AVL), Idaho National Laboratory Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES), University of Wyoming and Kitware, Inc.
