TAMU GIS Day Site
As part of its STEM outreach mission, the IVC gave visualization presentations to Houston area high school students coordinated by the IPAA/PESA Education Center.
The Immersive Visualization Center, located in room 260 of the Halbouty Geosciences Building, provides the latest in advanced visualization capabilities to researchers at Texas A&M University. Based on a semi-rigid, rear projected, curved screen, the IVC facilitates the imaging of very large datasets from a diverse set of disciplines. Geophysics, life and physical sciences, engineering, and architecture are all able to gain a better understanding of their research by taming the complexity of their data through visualization. This particular configuration is the first such installation in the world. The screen was constructed by SEOS and is driven by a custom-built SuperMicro workstation from R Associates running Linux. The IVC is housed in space provided by the Department of Geology and Geophysics and is operated by the Institute for Scientific Computation. Please see the Access page for account information.
