Visualisation of High Dimensional Data.


This project will develop tools for the visualisation of high dimensional data sets for the Charles Perkins Centre.


Professor Manfred Lenzen

Research Location

Charles Perkins Centre – the Judith and David Coffey Life Lab

Program Type



All of the Judith and David Coffey Life Lab projects involve high levels of interdisciplinary interaction, and also employ large volumes of different types of data, both as input and as output from models. A crucial factor in the success of all of all of these projects is the ability to visualise and interpret this data. The visualisation theme will produce software tools for the real time visualisation of data that is output from models. The same type of tools will also be used for visualisation of raw input data. Methodologies for detection of patterns in high dimensional data sets will be developed and interactivity will be incorporated to allow manipulation of images, perspectives, scale and different cross sections through the dimensions. The potential of haptic interfaces and 3D technology will be explored.

Additional Information

The Life Lab creates a new kind of graduate and postgraduate training environment at the interface between life, social, economic and physical sciences. Its focus is to address the significant challenges we face from an unsustainable food system that degrades the environmental services it depends on, and creates significant societal health problems. A better understanding of the complexity of the environment-food-health nexus is critical. It is fundamental to building a sustainable society, and one that is more robust to future uncertainties. Our unique approach will be a world-first in shifting research on these growing challenges from treating symptoms to prevention.Life Lab will challenge existing paradigms and university models to create a research training environment in which traditional disciplinary boundaries do not apply. Our ambitious vision is to create an ‘innovation hub' where researchers from disciplines spanning physical, life and social and economic sciences will interface with business, government and agency leaders. It will develop integrated approaches to the challenges that threaten societal wellbeing, and train the next generation of experts with the skills required to find solutions.
