iUTAH Visualization Lab (iVL)
The iUTAH Visualization Lab (iVL) was an innovative, cross-institutional visualization effort developed at the University of Utah and Utah State University. With efforts focused on increasing the understanding of the integrated human + natural water system, Research Focus Area 3 worked on visualizations of the Coupled Human-Natural System. The iVL lab focused its research and design efforts on projects that generated new knowledge, supported iUTAH’s science missions, and added value to iUTAH data streams and findings for both researcher and stakeholders, including the public. To that end, researchers with backgrounds in climate science, urban planning, and irrigation systems management have developed models representing different dimensions of the water system.
