My thanks to all of you for filling out the prior survey regarding the visualization lab on the Fairfax campus. The committee brought your feedback to the facilities team leading the project, and we have begun to move forward with the space renovations. The architecture and engineering (A&E) team is now looking for more technical specifics from interested faculty, given a recent assessment of the space. I know that we all receive too many survey requests these days, but if you would be able to take advantage of a new visualization lab, would you please respond to this follow-up survey? The survey closes on December 7th:
Please note: currently, the plan is to retro-fit space in Research Hall to accommodate faculty needs. When thinking about potential uses for the space, we would ask you to keep in mind the dimensions of the room in Research Hall. The room is 66 ft x 16 ft, and the ceiling is 8’ 6” in most places. This means that some larger scale technologies (such as a CAVE system requiring high ceilings) may not be feasible.
Thank you for your support of research at Mason!
I am serving on a committee charged with the design of a new visualization lab in Research Hall on the Fairfax campus. This is an entirely separate endeavor from the IDIA visualization lab planning that you may be aware of. We are taking a broad view of visualization, to consider as many faculty as possible. We have put together a short questionnaire to identify use cases and technical needs for the space. These use cases could include large scale monitor arrays, AR/VR setups, digital CAVE systems, among many others. If interested, could you please respond through the following link? The survey closes this Friday, and it is important that CEC faculty needs are well represented.
