    Every day we see our world: the natural world, ourselves, other people, and the results of our creation. But how do we see them? And what would happen if we could see them differently - from a new angle, a different point of view, or a fresh perspective?

    The Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments seeks to create these new ways of seeing, to help us interpret our world, to reach a new understanding and to improve the human condition.

    Through multi-disciplinary research projects that encompass the fields of engineering, history, medicine, science, technology and art, the Vis Center brings together innovative researchers for the common goal of creating technology that transforms how we see the world.

    The Center for Visualization: creating new ways of seeing the world, new views of the world, and new things to see.
