Center for Visual and Decision Informatics (CVDI)
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and Drexel University have partnered to establish the National Science Foundation Center for Visual and Decision Informatics (CVDI). CVDI is a multi‐university – industry research center established as an NSF I/UCRC. The Center’s mission is to research and develop next‐generation visual and decision support tools and techniques to enable decision makers in government and industry to fundamentally improve the way their organization’s information is interpreted.
CVDI brings together, analytic, visual and perceptual techniques by advancing the state‐ of‐the‐art in the research fields of Information Visualization, Visual Analytics and Automated Analysis. This research is supported by advanced computing and visualization facilities to create Decision‐Making Environments (DME) – a framework that enables users to explore and customize information streams in a variety of modalities to gain better insight to information.
