dataViz VR BETA
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
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.
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 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.
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)

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
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.
