The 3-sided computer animated virtual environment (3D CAVE) at the Institute of Geoscience offers a modern immersive visualization that supports an improved and faster analysis of complex spatial and temporal multi-scale datasets. 

Based on nearly 10 years of experience, we focus on a fast data integration / easy-access usability, building on (1) a fast and smooth data / model transfer from standard software to 3-dimensional visualization, and (2) the immediate possibility of discussing and manipulating models with groups up to 10 users directly within the visualization cluster. The setup offers an inspiring and supportive learning environment, allowing professional interaction with 3D data, presentation and training, as well as knowledge transfer with non-experts.

The focus of the lab is to project complex geodata sets spatially in order to visually analyze data structures and their internal relationships.
