The VIS-5D scientific visualization system has been extended to include an interactive mode controlled by virtual environment devices. This animation is part of a series of live screen captures demonstrating this capability.

A live screen capture of the interaction of a virtual hand with data from a computer simulation of Hurricane Florence. The hand grabs and moves the data visualzation, then activates a direct readout of data from the position of the virtual fingertip. Finally, wind streamline tracer ribbons are generated from the moving fingertip.
