Visual Analytics

We believe that the future of big data depends on our ability to explore and understand data and research results in a visual manner. We have developed a 3D Heatmap tool that uses video game engines to represent data in a 3D space for interactive exploration. Further, our Idea Space in the Richards Building is Penn’s first immersive data visualization facility. This facility is open to all faculty, students, and staff across the university.

Visual Analytics projects include:

IBI has developed a 3D heatmap application that extends the two-dimensional heatmap into the third dimension.

The IBI Idea Space provides a unique collaboration space with the state-of-the-art technology and visualization resources for Penn faculty, students, and staff.
