dataViz VR BETA

@Hiloni (04/11/21)


DataViz VR beta is the software that allows big data visualization upto 6 variables at a time in Virtual reality.


Instaling DataViz VR on Oculus Quest 2- link

  • Instructions on how to download and install software on Quest 2

Data Soruces/Format

datasets for use in datavizVR should be placed in the same file path as the .exe folder located at "~/datavizvr_preview/datasets" on the PC.

The format of dataset- The file should have commas between every data point in a particular row. It should not contain any commas surrounded by quotes. All data points in a single column should be of same type- String, Integer, etc. The roes with null data is removed from plotting.

Data File format-

data should be saved in '.csv' file format.

VR Controls

Trigger Button- Choose variables, dataset, axis, etc.

Grip button- to move the plot around, see labels, etc.

Thumb stick- to scroll the datasets


Multiple User

Multiple user collaboration is not available in VR for beta version. however, the 3data license now provides collaboration and allow multiple users to access and manipulate the vizualization together.

Single User

Allow you to edit and analyze data in your workspace independently.


  • Allows you to choose 6 variables of dataset and view the vizualisationa nd relationship between them.

  • Allows to scatter plot on X, Y, Z axis, color, size, label

  • easily switch and add new variables to your plot.

  • Choose different color- for you color plotted variable.

  • Change background- Provides 2 options (Day and Night).

Minimum System Requirements (VR Mode)

OS: Windows 10

GPU: Nvidia 980 Ti (2500 rows can be rendered simultaneously)

VR Headset: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift S, Valve Index, Oculus quest 2 with Steam.



Quick reference-


Accessibility: The estimated time for someone to load and start visualizing data in VR

  • Beginner: No coding or graphics experience | < 1 hour

  • Intermediate: Some coding or graphics experience | < 45 minutes

  • Advanced: Both coding and graphics experience | < 30mins

  • Expert: A lot of experience with VR visualization | < 30mins

  • Takeaway:

  • This software provides with features to view various data and visualize upto 6 variables at a time. The experience of selecting variables, assigning axis, etc. is very intuative and makes visualization of big data really easy. However, it can be improved for allowing multiple variable to be visualized at a time and also had options of different plot types than scatter.

  • Power: The engine's power- i.e. how much once can do with this

  • Medium- Although, it provides basic features- there are many other features that could be added like multiple variables, different plots, etc. to make visualization easier and better.

Usage: Evaluation of software's use for the following purposes

  • Big data Visualization

  • Relationship between various variables

  • graphics(allowing color change in graph and background change)


DataViz VR Beta version(Free to download from Steam)-

  • Access to visualization in scatter plot with color changes.

  • Not inclluded- collaboration, other plots, etc.
