Lehigh's highly anticipated Visualization Lab opens later this month in E.W. Fairchild-Martindale Library.  It features several innovative visualization tools, including a MultiTaction Curved iWall for the collaborative investigation of digital information at large scale.  In addition, the Lab is outfitted with an HTC VIVE system, which provides users with an immersive virtual reality experience.

The Visualization Lab is open to faculty, students, and staff following a brief series of required training sessions with a member of the Visualization Lab Support Team.  It has been envisioned as a collaborative space that can effortlessly shift from the examination of visual data on a vast pixel canvas to the evaluation of the pedagogical value of virtual reality environments--a place to explore; a place to create; a place to solve.

The Lab's core visualization technologies include:
