The VDC is an interactive data visualization in virtual reality (VR) in which the
data define the aesthetics and atmosphere of the virtual world. By interacting with
a concrete virtual environment users can explore the abstract and non-visual data
space. The VR experience consists of two spaces („class room“ and „parameter space“, see Fig. 2) where users can move continuously from one space to another.
