Laramie Immersive Visualization Bootcamp

The second immersive visualization bootcamp was held in Laramie Wyoming on the University of Wyoming campus on June 12 - 14, 2013. There was another capacity crowd with considerable interaction among participants and speakers. We highly appreciate the team at the Wyoming School of Energy Resources who provided the facilities and hosted the lunch and evening gatherings. (We held our first bootcamp in Indianapolis.)

Demonstrating LidarViewer

Immersive visualization makes use of advanced display technologies such as the SER CAVE at the University of Wyoming 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.
