Virtual Reality and Data Visualization

Table of Contents

Virtual reality Technology is a kind of experience that is similar to or completely different from the world. Data visualization is known as the graphical representation of data and is making strides into Augmented reality.

VR for Industries

  1. Marketing- it helps to grab the attention of your potential customers. 
  2. Startups- it gives you many opportunities to increase your sales. 
  3. Training and education- it can be used for real-time and risk-free training of the employees.
  4. Aviation and Maritime- it helps in maintenance of the machinery.
  5. eCommerce and Retail- 360 degree experience and try-before-buy virtual experiences.

Why is data visualisation important for any career?

There is no industry in the entire world which doesn’t benefit from making data more understandable. Visualisation is so prolific, it’s the most important professional skill that everyone should have for their own benefit. The best way of conveying any information is by using charts, tables etc. 

Different methods to visualise data are area charts, bar charts, bubble cloud, circle view, heat map, matrix, bullet graph, polar area etc.


Immersive virtual reality data visualisation 

Virtual reality data visualisation are 3D projects which are made on a computer. These are highly interactive. VR visualisations offer very easy pattern recognition and retention. All of us are familiar with 2D images and charts, so to look at all this in a different 3D way is great. It’s very interactive and will be liked by the user who is viewing the presentation as it makes gaining the knowledge easier. This is also a better way in invoking the emotions of the audience, it gives the audience a totally new perspective and take. Scale also plays an important role as that can be changed when working with VR, scaling in and out can help them look at more and less information. 

Visualisation of data helps the user to understand the pattern in a better way. It basically helps the user interact with data so that its easy for them to go through it. 2D doesn’t offer a clear view on a lot of aspects of data like data clusters but through Virtual reality the user can be in front of, behind, above and to either side of the user, so that it makes the process of understanding amazing.

Virtual reality training simulation

Virtual reality training simulation is a digital way of real-life scenarios for the purpose of training. The trainees enter a 360-degree, active learning environment, where virtual reality meets the actual reality. They can look, move and speak freely in a virtual life-like environment. 

The various benefits of this training are:

  1. Makes people proficient. 
  2. Improves customer service.
  3. Better workplace safety.
  4. Less incident costs.
  5. Discover the best ways to make decisions. 
  6. Speeds up the learning process 
  7. Makes the impossible possible

Final thoughts

Modern data’s can only be presented in a 2D way by pulling together a lot of 2D representations, reports and graphs whereas VR allows the users to see everything at once from all the directions, it helps the learning process to get better and it helps the user understand the concepts better. VR uses a human’s natural instinct to think about and process the data in various dimensions. This helps to communicate the data at different positions efficiently. This also makes studying data more fun.
