High-Resolution Visualization and Animation Group

Solar System Simulation
The High-Resolution Visualization and Animation Group consists of JMU students and faculty in a wide variety of disciplines. What brings them together is an interest in and/or need for visualization and animation systems with a resolution that is an order of magnitude greater than that provided by traditional graphics workstation.

The photograph on the left shows one frame of an animation of the movements of the planetary bodies in the solar system.

The original system was designed and implemented by JMU undergraduates and continues to be maintained and improved by undergraduate and graduate students.

The photograph on the right shows a visualization of the RIKEN mouse genome.
