Visualization and Virtual Reality

Visualization
"Visualization is the process of representing data as images that can aid in understanding the meaning of the data. Visualization is classically divided into two main categories: Information Visualization and Scientific Visualization. Information Visualization characterizes the visualization of abstract data, such as business data. Scientific Visualization characterizes the visualization of data that have a natural representation, such as weather data."
Definition from Jason Leigh


Virtual Reality
"Virtual Reality (VR) is minimally defined as a computer generated experience consisting of stereoscopic, real-time, viewer-centered computer graphics. A VR experience may be further, and significantly enriched by the inclusion of spacially located sound, haptics and smell."
Definition from Jason Leigh


Virtual Reality
"Virtual reality is the simulation of a real or imagined environment that can be experienced visually in the three dimensions of width, height, and depth and that may additionally provide an interactive experience visually in full real-time motion with sound and possibly with tactile and other forms of feedback. The simplest form of virtual reality is a 3-D image that can be explored interactively at a personal computer, usually by manipulating keys or the mouse so that the content of the image moves in some direction or zooms in or out. Most of these images require installing a plug-in for your browser. As the images become larger and interactive controls more complex, the perception of "reality" increases. More sophisticated efforts involve such approaches as wrap-around display screens, actual rooms augmented with wearable computers, and haptics joystick devices that let you feel the display images."

Virtual Reality
"Virtual Reality is a way for humans to visualize, manipulate and interact with computers and extremely complex data."
Definition from The Silicon Mirage, by Steve Aukstakalnis, David Blatner, Stephen F. Roth (Editor)
