Recent advancements and technological breakthroughs in the development of so-called immersive interfaces such as Virtual Reality (VR) coupled with the growing mass-market adaptation of such devices has started to attract attention from both academia and industry alike. VR is a term interchangeably used to denote goggles or head-mounted displays (HMDs) that transport their user to a fully immersive, 3D Virtual Reality environment (VRE). Coupling VREs with visual analytics has spun-off a new field of research, i.e. immersive visual analytics, that leverages the potential bestowed by immersive interfaces to aid the user in swift and effective data analysis. One of the most promising fields of application of such immersive interfaces in the industry are various branches of engineering, including aerospace and aeronautical design and in civil engineering. The range of potential applications is vast and growing as new stakeholders are adapting these immersive tools. However, the use of these technologies has its own challenges. For instance, it is possible for the VRE to cause the “simulation sickness” symptoms among the users. Another difficulty in the selection of an appropriate interaction technique which may vary not only due to the available hardware but also the users’ prior experience, the task at hand or the visualized dataset. To this end, in this talk, we will discuss examples of the design and application of various interaction techniques in VR for industrial visual analytics. These examples include (1) the AeroVR system for aerospace design in VR, (2) digital twinning and prognosis for aeronautics in VR, (3) abstract data visualization using an immersive version of the Parallel Coordinates Plots (IPCP), (4) and information capture in the context of an engineering survey of a photo-realistic model of an existing structure in VR.
