Abstract

We present ongoing work in enhancing ParaView with new immersive visualization capabilities and demonstrate its use in the development of our scientific workflow in support of visual analytics in an immersive environment to advance measurement science. Two case-studies of complex meteorology and radio-frequency (RF) data as part of the knowledge discovery process reveal the benefits of interactively exploring the three-dimensional data with immersive technologies such as the CAVE and head mounted display virtual reality. By adding support of immersive technology into ParaView, researchers can more naturally investigate the data of three-dimensional simulations. These efforts to provide tools for immersive visualization are guided by the need to advance measurement science, standards, and technology. To make these tools more broadly accessible and impactful, we promote the use of software standards related to visualization and immersive systems.
