The UTSA Advanced Visualization Laboratory (VizLab), managed by the Office of Information Technology (OIT) Research Computing Support Group (RCSG), allows researchers from all disciplines of art, science, and engineering to conduct simulation and visualization research to better understand complex phenomena and translate data into images on large-scale and high-resolution visualization walls or other display devices. The laboratory supports UTSA's mission of teaching, research and community engagement and contributes to UTSA's goal to recruit the world's top computational researchers. UTSA faculty,students, and staff who are interested in utilizing the VizLab should contact the RCSG by clicking here.
By focusing on research in health, energy, security, sustainability and human development, the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) is quickly becoming a national research university. Many of the topics under investigation in these areas require UTSA researchers to interpret massive amounts of data in an easily comprehensible manner. The Lab is also available for use by any student organizations, outreach programs, class room lectures, and external organizations.
The VizLab has been funded by the National Science Foundation under the Major Research Instrumentation Program. Award Number: 0923468 The Principle Investigator for this project was Dr. Yusheng Feng, and Co-Principal Investigators include: Dr. Ruyan Guo, Dr. Harry Millwater, Dr. Brent Nowak and Dr. Heather Shipley.
