In many scientific areas a huge amount of data is generated, e.g. by complex simulations, performed on supercomputers, or by high resolution measurement instruments used in experimental studies.
Whenever the amount of data is very high or the data has a complex 3D-structure, it is of advantage to use special high-end 3D visualisation systems, so called virtual reality (vr) systems. These projection based visualisation systems provide sterescopic image generation and, by means of so called tracking devices, real 3D user interaction.
