Joint Seminar: Virtual Reality Technology as a tool in Meteorology and Hydrology

Virtual Reality (VR) technology has evolved over recent years and has been adopted by many industries around the world. Meteorology and hydrology are now standing in an optimal position to gain exponentially from advances made in VR technology which have resulted in VR hardware and software becoming inexpensive and mainstream. VR provides a new data visualization method which allows users to visualize data in a completely different way and become interactive with their data. As a result, VR creates fast data visualization techniques that provide a near in field user experience and can influence the speed and accuracy of data analysis. The Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) is currently working with national and regional partners to examine the broad spectrum of applications using VR technology for this new data visualization medium. Our applications look at uses VR for education, public awareness, meteorological and hydrological training, research and operational purposes.
