air quality in VR

Some data exploration in collaboration with the Mixed Reality Lab at USC’s Institute for Creative Technology. One feature of Virtual Reality (VR) is that you have essentially “infinite” screen space. You also can place a user wherever or whenever you want. The TNL’s Hyper Local Air Quality project generated millions of data points, and also looked at associated weather information. This collaboration with MxR brought the geo-specific air quality data into VR, allowing a user to explore current and past conditions around them.
