The Core Repository is proud to show off its brand new Visualization Hyperwall system for use with Corewall core description and data visualization software, scientific data processing, and educational scientific visualizations! And best of all, it is accessible by anyone using the corelab facilities!
The Hyperwall is a 3 x 2 array of six 30" Ultrasharp (2560x1600) Dell Monitors powered by a MacPro configured with 12 Intel Xeon cores at 3.06Ghz, 64GB of RAM, and dual high-performance ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB graphic cards.
The Hyperwall running Corewall - sediment core images are superimposed with data such as density, natural gamma, and magnetic susceptibility.
