The Advanced Visualization Center staff assists students and faculty with the use of advanced technologies for the creation of visualizations for education and research. We also provide training on advanced software applications and data visualization techniques. The center supports the advancement of technology in education with an Ultra High Resolution Visualization Wall, with remote access to USF's High Performance Computing Cluster, a Rapid Prototyping Lab with over 40 3D printers and the Advanced Visualization Student Lab. We continue to explore and develop innovative practices in 3D Modeling, 3D Printing, Visual Graphics, Animation, Augmented and Virtual Reality, Data Analysis and Interactive Applications. The Advanced Visualization Center is part of USF Information Technology, Research Computing.

The Advanced Visualization Center is located at the Physics Building 12010 in CMC 147, across from the lecture hall.
