Join us on for a special weekday morning Field Trip to tour the NASA Glenn Graphics and Visualization Lab (GVIS). The Graphics and Visualization Lab features Virtual Reality, Natural User Interface, Scientific Visualization, Interactive System Simulation, and Augmented Reality.
Join us for this special meeting lead by Herb Schilling, Computer Scientist and good friend of CDPUG member Diane Sadowski.
REGISTRATION ClOSED! Attendance limit reached.
The Graphics & Visualization (GVIS) Lab provides specialized services, expertise, and facilities for the visualization of scientific data, engineering analyses, and mission scenarios.
As researchers conduct more and more experiments by computer simulation instead of in traditional laboratories or wind tunnels, scientific visualization of the numerical results has become a powerful and necessary research tool. Similarly, engineers and mission planning specialists use visualizations to study the details of an orbital rendezvous, the assembly of new spacecraft, or the testing of a rocket engine in one of NASA Glenn’s facilities.
The GVIS Lab staff works with scientists and engineers to produce custom graphics applications, animations, or multi-media presentations of their projects. Projects can also take advantage of the Lab’s many advanced display devices, such as stereoscopic 3D projectors and monitors, or be adapted for the GRUVE Lab, NASA Glenn’s fully immersive, large-screen Virtual Reality facility.
Many of the projects utilize the Advanced Computational Concepts Lab (ACCL), Glenn’s high-performance computing facility, which is tightly integrated with the visualization equipment in the GVIS Lab.
Finally, because the images created by the GVIS Lab are often beautiful, exciting, and inspiring representations of NASA’s research, the lab provides a variety of ways to support outreach, education, public awareness, and program advocacy.
