Virtual Immersive Scientific and Technological Applications
The team is creating a virtual model that is completely identical to the Library. The model will include the Library’s main building, planetarium, study rooms…etc. and even the Library’s furniture will be seen clearly and accurately in this demo.
This application uses the 3D immersive technology to visualize the effects of climate change. It has modules that visualizes ice cover, wind patterns, sea levels and other climate aspects.
This project is a collaborative scientific research initiative which encompass developing 3D scientific models of sites in Egypt, mainly the Karnak, as well as other sites.
The LinkSCEEM-2 project aims at the establishment of a high performance computing (HPC) eco-system in the Eastern Mediterranean. The VISTA team contributions to the project are within WP11. The scientific objectives of WP11 concern the use of scientific computing and visualization as a research framework in Cultural Heritage. The areas of advanced image documentation and distribution of culturalheritage artefacts and, 3D and 4D visualization will be addressed.
The Vista team is currently collaborating with a group of Egyptians doctors and physicians to investigate how virtually immersive technology can be of use to Egyptian physicians and medical researchers.
This application proposes a new visualization technique for multi-dimensional numerical data. The case study uses data provided by the UN. This data includes health care, life duration expectancy and literacy rate over a 25 year period in some countries.
The Losch theory application is an example of theory visualization developed by the VISTA team. This theory deals with the natural development of settlements into farms, villages, towns, etc. Using the VISTA, researchers are now able to virtually view the growth of these settlements.
This project is a collaborative work between IBM and Bibliotheca Alexandrina based on a research work conducted in IBM center for Advanced Studies in Cairo (CAS). The VISTA team has implemented the visualization of the simulation results, provided by CAS, on the CAVE system to provide new insights and better understanding. The visualization involves several visualization algorithms.
VEGI (Virtual Environment GUI Immersion System) is an API developed in VISTA to facilitate the immersion of 2D images in DIVERSE applications and interact with them in a 3D.
