Data Visualization Studio

Portland State University's Data Visualization Studio is a high-performance, collaborative workspace for researchers, instructors, and decision-makers to engage with information across a wide spectrum of disciplines. 

The studio offers large-scale visualization of data and imagery, powerful computing, video conferencing capabilities, and a collaborative environment that enables teams to work in small groups on a single unit, then pair all units together to view larger data sets and images.
