Virtual World Data Visualization


Published on

Virtual worlds have been used for interacting and building structures and simulations. The next logical step is to stream in data, represent it visually and be able to interact with it. The two main areas of virtual worlds data visualization, 3d virtual command centers and data visualization tools, are highlighted in this presentation.
