Collaborative and Immersive Visual Analytics

The increasing need to visualize and analyze big and complex data leads today’s research towards collaborative methods and technologies to enable a group of humans to work in a shared virtual or augmented space. With the Collaborative and Immersive Visual Analytics (ColimVis) project, we use the combination of recent virtual and augmented reality technologies (e.g. the Oculus Rift DK2 head mounted display and the Leapmotion sensor) in order to enable groups of users to explore complex data in a collaborative virtual system. Direct benefits of such a system include sharing different points of views of the visualisation, sharing interesting discoveries such as particular visual patterns, and much more.
