Visualizations of Statistics in Three Dimensions Using Virtual Reality
Data visualization has come a long way from tables and bar graphs to 3D animated graphics in Excel. The next step is to bring data into full 3D using VR (or AR/MR). DataViz(Vive/Rift),a free beta app allows users to take numbers and statistics and plot them in 3D axes, which they can easily manipulate. Users are then able to view the data from new angles, which in some cases may result in different patterns and trends being identified.
