The development of ViSTA Virtual Reality Toolkit was co-funded by the HBP during the Ramp-up Phase. This page is kept for reference but will no longer be updated.
The ViSTA Virtual Reality Toolkit allows the integration of virtual reality (VR) technology and interactive, 3D visualisation into technical and scientific applications. The toolkit aims to enhance scientific applications with methods and techniques of VR and immersive visualization, thus enabling researchers from multiple disciplines to interactively analyse and explore their data in virtual environments. ViSTA is designed to work on multiple target platforms and operating systems, across various display devices (desktop workstations, powerwalls, tiled displays, CAVEs, etc.) and with various interaction devices.
