Results are then compared for the same group of students between the situation when they learned with scientific visualizations
and when they did not.

Fully immersive scientific visualization
includes: one or more large rear projection screens to encompass peripheral vision, stereoscopic display for increased depth perception, and head tracking for realistic perspective based on the user's viewing direction.
Virtual environments in scientific visualization
Visualizing and analyzing the data generated by the computational models overwhelms traditional scientific visualization
Compaq expects such clusters to be used for such applications as fraud detection, decision support applications, data warehousing, database loading, computer-aided design, scientific visualization
and web search engines.
This ability to extract information and understanding from a large pool of data is the very essence of scientific visualization
. Although some three-dimensional (3D) computer displays have been used to enhance the limited capabilities of the human information processing system in data visualization (Wickens, Merwin, & Lin, 1994), others have looked to the new technology of virtual reality (VR) for the solution (Barfield & Furness, 1995; Durlach & Mavor, 1995; Rheingold, 1991).
Information displays have moved past 2D bar charts, line charts and pie charts, and beyond the interactive 3D scatter plots and contour plots of statistical and scientific visualization
. It is now possible (on an inexpensive workstation) to build, display and update, in real time, visual scenes composed of abstract 3D geometrical forms.
