Visualization Center

The Visualization Center TESSIN VISLab (Vislab) allows scientists with different backgrounds to explore and analyse complex and heterogeneous spatial data sets. A large interactive stereoscopic projection screen is used to dive right into the displayed environmental data sets thus helping in understanding scientific questions and challenges. The Vislab fosters knowledge transfer in the scientific community as well as among the general public.

Overview of Projects


Urban Systems

Energy Systems & Geotechnics

Climate & Ecosystems

Vislab projects cover a large range of environmental research fields in terrestrial systems such as weather phenomena in the atmosphere, urban systems including various infrastructures such as water supply and waste water management, heating and cooling supply based on ground source heat pumps and geothermal systems, energy resources, storage and waste deposition in the subsurface, surface processes including land use and hydrosystems.
